Biennale Arte in Venice

57th International Art Exhibition
"Viva Arte Viva"
from 13th May to 26th November 2017

The 57th International Art Exhibition, titled “Viva Arte Viva” and curated by Christine Macel, is organized by La Biennale di Venezia chaired by Paolo Baratta. The Exhibition will be open to the public from Saturday, 13th May, to Sunday, 26th November 2017, at the Giardini and the Arsenale venues. The preview will take place on 10th, 11th and 12th May, the awards ceremony and inauguration will be held on Saturday 13th May 2017.

The exhibition “Viva Arte Viva” will unfold over the course of nine chapters or families of artists, beginning with two introductory realms in the Central Pavillon, followed by another seven across the Arsenale through the Giardino delle Vergini. 120 are the invited artists from 51 countries; 103 of these are participating for the first time.

This year the focus will be on the artists' world as a source of "generosity" and "vitality", in a perspective of faith in the world and of an opening “from yourself to the other”, through a journey into the interior of the artists themselves.

One of the guiding concepts of the art exhibition will be the idea of ​​otium, as useful and anything but inoperative, in which the artist can fine-tune his practice.

The Biennale Arte of Venice will give importance to the energy of creativity, bringing together artists from several generations and nationalities.
