INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Museum of Art will present the work of two Puerto Rico-based artists at the International Art Exhibition at the 2011 Venice Biennale in Italy.

Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla are known for their art which is a mixture of sculpture, photography, video, sound and performance.

The museum says the new commissions by the pair will explore social issues such as national identity, democracy, militarism and freedom.

The works will be on view at the U.S. Pavilion at the exhibition from June 4 through Nov. 27, 2011.

The museum also plans a variety of related programs, including a forum on art and global dialogue for teens in Indianapolis, Puerto Rico and Venice.
