On 23rd, November 2015, one day after the closing day of the 56th International Art Exhibition of Venice Biennale, artist group TanBo(Tan Tan and Eric Bribosia) announced to the world that they won the first "Super Lion Award" of “Venize Biennale”in the art history! Following, they spread an “online exhibition” with their awarded works in several editions of web news. Soon, they received plenty of congratulations from friends and strangers all around the world... Nearly no one noticed that it was "Venize" but not "Venice".
From 2016, Tan Tan has been working on "Venize Biennale World Tour" all around the world. Every exhibition of the tour is composed of photographs, videos, installations, and performances, in accompany with online interactions with the audience throughout the whole course. The First stop has been held in China, at Chongqing Changjiang Contemporary Art Museum, Chongqing, in June 2016.
In 2017, Tan Tan and Eric Bribosia, together with belgian/Italian artist Sophie Saporosi, has set up a new project"Venize Biennale 2017-Special program "TRANS-BORDERING-ART: Everyone’s 5 min Solo Exhibition". In brief, this special program is a group exhibition parallel to the 57th International Art Exhibition of Venice Biennale (13th of May – 26th of November 2017). Meanwhile it is also an entire artwork, which can be regarded as “relational art”, “socially engaged art”, or an “art intervention”. It is a "jury free" exhibition, which means that everyone who submits is selected .
