Discover what to do in Venice
58TH INTERNATIONAL ART EXHIBITION
President Paolo Baratta stated that “the appointment of Ralph Rugoff confirms the Biennale's primary goal, to qualify the Exhibition as a place of encounter between the visitors, the art and the artists. An Exhibition engaging the viewers directly with the artworks in such a way that memory, the unexpected, the new and the different can stimulate their visions, their minds and their emotions.”
The 58th International Art Exhibition will take place from 11th May to 24th November 2019 (pre-opening on 8th, 9th and 10th May).
