Joan Jonas 


The multimedia artist Joan Jonas, 78, was chosen to represent the United States at the Venice Art Biennale this year, and she did not disappoint. Each of the five rooms of the pavilion was given a different theme, such as “bees” and “mirrors,” and treats viewers to rich, sometimes autobiographical narratives. The show, titled “They Come to Us Without a Word,” includes videos, installations, drawings, and sculptures, as well as live performances (on three days in July).
