Joan Jonas‘s “triumphal exhibition” at the Venice Biennale “doesn’t simply look back on a long and fruitful career: It extends that career,” writes Roberta Smith of the 70-year-old artist’s US pavilion multimedia installation, They Come to Us Without a Word. Organized by MIT’s List Visual Arts Center, the installation is said to be “one of the best solo shows to represent the United States at the biennale in over a decade—an effortless combination of maturity and freshness.”
