The 57th International Art Exhibition, titled Viva Arte Viva, opened to the public from Saturday May 13th to Sunday November 26th, at the Arsenale and Giardini venues, and in several locations in Venice. The show featured 120 invited artists, of which 103 were participating for the first time, 86 National Participations, a Special Project, and 23 Collateral Events.
The Exhibition offered a route that unfolded over the course of nine chapters or families of artists, beginning with two introductory realms in the Central Pavilion in the Giardini, followed by seven more realms to be found in the Arsenale and the Giardino delle Vergini. “Viva Arte Viva is an Exhibition inspired by humanism” declared Christine Macel.
“Viva Arte Viva is an exclamation, a passionate outcry for art and the state of the artist. Viva Arte Viva is a Biennale designed with artists, by artists and for artists.” – Christine Macel, La Biennale di Venezia.
