|Notes:||"Stazione was commissioned for Palestine c/o Venice, Collateral event of the 53rd Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia."
Published in conjunction with the "Palestine c/o Venice" exhibition," held at Ex Convento Cosma e Damiano, for the 53rd Venice Biennale, June 7-Sept. 30, 2009.
The project was cancelled. "Emily Jacir's public intervention Stazione would have seen the 24 piers for the Route 1 water bus (the vaporetto that starts at the Lido stop and ends at Piazzale Roma) display the names of the stops in Arabic as well as the usual Italian, creating a bilingual transportation route up and down the Grand Canal. The arabic inscriptions would have placed each floating platform in direct dialogue with the surrounding architecture and urban design, linking them with various elements of Venice's shared heritage with the Arab world. Jacir was only allowed to distribute a map in Italian, Arabic and English of the number 1 route. It contains a map of the location of the project, as well as the Vaporetto map translated into Arabic and a brief explanation of the background to the piece. However, she was forbidden by Palestine c/o Venice organizers to include a text describing the cancellation of her project by the Venetian Municipal Authorities. She was only permitted to include the following note: THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN CANCELLED."--"Emily Jacir's Stazione. In Turin and uncensored this time."
