An online petition on has appeared calling for Kanye West to curate the 2015 Venice Biennale arguing "with contemporary art lingering confused in a mannerist phase, we believe West is the best person to show us the way forward and to explain, agitate, and situate artistic production in its current cultural and global setting."

The hastag #BiennalYe has been created as well as a whole host of reasons why West should direct the 56th Biennale including the fact that the rapper photoblogged the entirety of Urs Fischer's 2009 New Museum exhibition and hired Vanessa Beecroft's art direction on his "Runaway" music video. If you agree you can sign the petition here now.
