57th International Art Exhibition (La Biennale Arte)
Giardini, Arsenale, and various locations throughout Venice
Date: 9 May 2016-26 November 2017
First opened in 1895, La Biennale Arte has grown from a small showcase of Italian art to the most important event on the art world’s calendar. Each of the participating nations, expected to be more than 80 in this iteration, selects an artist to install an exhibit on the nation’s behalf. The majority of the exhibition takes place in the Giardini, a lavish French garden left in Venice by Napoleon Bonaparte, and the Arsenale, a beautifully restored complex of former shipyards and armories dating back to the 12th century. In recent years, exhibits have outgrown their original venues and taken up residence in various locations throughout Venice’s historic city center. For more information, visit the official website.
The special preview day is on 9th May, followed by the vernissage, or preview, which runs from 10th to 12th May. The awards ceremony and official opening date is 13th May. The Giardini and Arsenale are closed on most Mondays.
Tickets to attend the event, are available for purchase over here.
