By FEDERICA LUSIARDI - February 4, 2017
The 57th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia will take place in Venice from May 13th through November 26th 2017. The title chosen by the curator of this year’s edition, Christine Macel, is “Viva Arte Viva”cover image: portrait of Christine Macel, curator of the 57th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia.
Christine Macel (1969) – since 2000 chief curator of the Musée national d’art moderne – Centre Pompidou in Paris / department of “Création contemporaine et prospective” – explained her project as follows: “In a world full of conflicts and jolts, in which humanism is being seriously jeopardized, art is the most precious part of the human being. It is the ideal place for reflection, individual expression, freedom and fundamental questions.”
“Viva Arte Viva” will be a Biennale designed with the artists, by the artists and for the artists. It deals with the forms they propose, the questions they pose, the practices they develop and the forms of life they choose.
Every day, during the weeks before the opening of the Exhibition, a video will be posted on the Biennale official website, giving the opportunity to uncover the artists even before the Exhibition.
