The Venice Art Biennale can be considered one of the most important contemporary art exhibitions in the world and takes place every 2 years from May to November.
The title of the exhibition “May You Live In Interesting Times” can be interpreted, according to President of the Biennale Paolo Baratta, as a curse referring to times of uncertainty and unrest in which we are currently living but also as an invitation to use creativity as an antidote to conformism.
This year’s exhibition, curated by Ralf Rugoff, director of the Hayward Gallery in London, is open until November 24 2019 and includes 79 artists from all over the world.
Entrance tickets are valid for both the Giardini, site of the first Biennale in 1895 with the Central Pavilion and 29 of the historical country pavilions, and the Arsenale where you can find the other international pavilions and the Italian Pavilion.
In addition, there are numerous country pavilions throughout the city, most of them with free entrance.
Interesting fact is that in this year’s exhibition half of the artists are women and under 40, almost all the works have been made after 2010 and have never been exhibited before.
Guided tours are available and also activities for families with kids where the expert guides will choose the best artworks for children and involve them in their explanations. Average duration of the tour is approx. 1.5 hours
