Exhibition: Biennale 2017All Events
27 May, 2017 - 26 November, 2017 | €25 – €80
Born as a biennial Italian Art exhibition with little space reserved to foreign artists, it became increasingly international already since 1907, when it offered a private Pavillon to Belgium. By 1914 the national Pavillon had grown to 7. As of now, there are 63 official National Pavillons and countless collateral locations and events spread around the city.
Since its foundation, the Biennale has given birth to other exhibitions such as the first film festival, the “Venice International Film Festival”, in 1934 and the Venice Biennale of Architecture in 1980.
The Art Biennale and the Architecture Biennale are held every two years, the first during odd-numbered years, the latter during even-numbered years.
