The 60th Venice Biennale

The Venice Biennale, curated by Adriano Pedrosa, artistic director of MASP. This year's theme, "Stranieri Ovunque - Foreigners Everywhere", highlights artists never before present at the Biennale and includes the 88 participating countries. The exhibition focuses on four themes: the queer artist, the outsider artist, the popular artist and the indigenous artist, all representing the contemporary core. More than 300 artists will be exhibited, with an emphasis on Brazilian indigenous art in the Central Pavilion.


The 60th Venice Biennale, titled Foreigners Everywhere, opened on April 20th at Giardini and Arsenale, curated by Adriano Pedrosa. The Biennale focuses on artists who have never participated before, with a Nucleo Storico showcasing works from the 20th century from the Global South. This offers insight into the dynamic exchange between foreign artists arriving in Europe and the emergence of a new kind of Modernism. The exhibition challenges dominant narratives and includes diverse voices, with a significant presence of deceased artists. The Brazilian Pavilion, renamed the Hãhãwpuá Pavilion, highlights Indigenous resistance and features works emphasizing territorial rights and resilience. Dalton Paula’s “Full Body Portraits” series explores Afro-Brazilian history and resistance, while Sonia Gomes presents an installation questioning voyeuristic desires. Established artists like Beatriz Milhazes and Anna Maria Maiolino also contribute to the exhibition, showcasing their enduring impact on contemporary art.
