As part of the 57th Biennale di Venezia, a new exhibition of Jason deCaires Taylor’s work is now open, starting at the Official National Pavilion of Grenada, the country where, in 2006, he began the first of his underwater works that now span several continents and total over 800+ submerged sculptures.

The works on display feature a collection of large-scale photographic prints and a series of new sculptures focussing on coral bleaching. Between 2014 and 2016, the longest global bleaching events ever were recorded. According to the United Nations Environment Programme, these bleaching events killed coral on an unprecedented scale. In 2016, bleaching hit 90 percent of coral on the Great Barrier Reef.

For the second time, Grenada will exhibit its art at a National Pavilion at the Arte Biennale in Venice. With the participation of the artists Milton Williams, Asher Mains, Alexandre Murucci, Khaled Hafez, Rashid al Kahlifa, Mahmoud Obaidi, Zena Assi and Jason deCaires Taylor.
