Art and whakapapa at the 2024 Venice Biennale

From Easter Monday, 8:05 am on 1 April 2024

The 60th International Art Exhibition opens at the Venice Biennale on Saturday 20 April. The theme is Stranieri Ovunque - Foreigners Everywhere. 

The layout of the Venice Biennale encompasses the canals, the streets, the lanes of the medieval port city with the exhibition taking place in the Central Pavillion Giardini and in the Arsenale. 

Of the 331 artists invited by the Venice Biennale, eight are from Aotearoa New Zealand this year - Sandy Adsett, Mataaho Collective, Selwyn Te Ngareatua Wilson, and Fred and Brett Graham.
