From the PMA’s press release:

U.S. Department of State Names Bruce Nauman to Represent the United States in the 2009 Venice Biennale

Philadhttp://www2.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gifelphia, PA (January 25, 2008) -The Philadelphia Museum of Art is pleased to announce the selection of Bruce Nauman (b. 1941) as the artist to represent the United States at the 2009 Venice Biennale. The State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs selected Nauman following the unanimous recommendation of the Federal Advisory Committee on International Exhibitions (FACIE) that reviewed proposals received through an open competition. Carlos Basualdo, Curator of Contemporary Art, and Michael Taylor, the Muriel and Philip Berman Curator of Modern Art, will serve as the U.S. Commissioners and will organize the exhibition from the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

…The Museum has recently acquired one of the most celebrated early neon works by the artist, The True Artist Helps the World by Revealing Mystic Truths of 1967, currently on display in its Modern and Contemporary galleries.

[From Libby’s comment: Here’s the link to the Philadelphia Inquirer story today. (link in comments didn’t work and I couldn’t put one in that worked there either….???!!!]
