For many years, the Rome-based Instituto Italo-Latino
Americano (IILA) has
organized a separate pavilion to provide a presence at the Venice Biennial
for Latin American countries which are members of the institute, and
do not have their own presentation.
Whereas the last one (2001) was far away in Treviso, under highly unfavorable
conditions (see our report),
it has now moved nearer to the actual event.
In addition to the commissioner for the exhibition as a whole,
most of the countries have a curator responsible solely for them.
