60th La Biennale di Venezia

This year’s exhibition spotlights artists from diverse backgrounds, giving space and visibility to previously marginalized groups, such as immigrants, expatriates, queer people, and indigenous individuals. It is about the constant movement of people between countries, nations, territories, identities, races, genders, sexualities, wealth and freedom.

The Brazilian curator and art historian Adriano Pedrosa, the artistic director of Museu de Arte de São Paulo Assis Chateaubriand (Masp), has become the first Latin American to curate the world's most distinguished arts festival.

This year the Venice Biennale features 90 National Participations in the historic Pavilions at the Giardini, at the Arsenale and in the city centre of Venice. The decision that the Israel pavilion will remain closed until a ceasefire and hostage release agreement are reached has dominated the headlines in the media lately, but the other pavilions in the Giardini opened as planned.

The Victor Pinchuk Foundation and the PinchukArtCentre presented the exhibition entitled ‘From Ukraine: Dare to Dream’, as a Collateral Event of the 60th International Art Exhibition at the Palazzo Contarini Polignac. When the world's in constant fear, the exhibition weaves a tapestry of stories and dreams gathered from all over the world, including 22 artists and collectives.
La Biennale di Venezia will run in Giardini and Arsenale until 24 November 2024.
