Venice Architecture and Art Biennales postponed to 2021 and 2022
Very sad news from the Biennale of Venice.
The opening of the Venice Architecture Biennale 2020 has been postponed to May 2021.
In March 2020, following the restrictions caused by the COVID-19 outbreak in Italy, the organizers announced that this year’s edition of the Venice Architecture Biennale, arguably the world’s most important architectural event, would be postponed to August 2020.
Now, in times of great uncertainty despite the recent re-opening of museums and cultural venues in Italy, the Biennale has decided to postpone the Architecture Biennale to the next year.
As the official website of the Biennale di Venezia reports “The 17th International Architecture Exhibition will run 22 May to 21 November 2021, curated by architect and scholar Hashim Sarkis.”
In turn, the Venice Art Biennale 2021 has been postponed to 2022.
“The 59th International Art Exhibition, curated by Cecilia Alemani, which was to take place in 2021, has in turn been postponed to 2022. It will last 7 months and will be held from Saturday, April 23rd to Sunday, November 27th.
We strongly believe that, despite the delay, the next Architecture and Art Biennales will represent a turning point and a sign of resilience and rebirth of two creative fields deeply hit by the COVID pandemic in 2020.
