Viva Arte Viva
Venice International Art Exhibition 2017
13/05/2017 - 26/11/2017

Don’t miss the chance to admire the beautiful and modern art masterpieces from artists from all over the world at the famous Venice International Art Exhibition.

The exhibition is now at its 57th edition and it is worldwide-known to be the original Biennale on which others elsewhere in the world are modeled.

This year, the Biennale will take place from May 13th to November 26th 2017 (Preview May 10th, 11th and 12th) in the Giardini and the Arsenale and in various other venues in Venice.

The title chosen by Christine Macel, curator of this year’s 57th International Art Exhibition, is: VIVA ARTE VIVA. Christine Macel has explained his project as follows:

“In a world full of conflicts and jolts, in which humanism is being seriously jeopardized, art is the most precious part of the human being. It is the ideal place for reflection, individual expression, freedom and fundamental questions. It is a “yes” to life, although sometimes a “but” lies behind. More than ever, the role, the voice and the responsibility of the artist are crucial in the framework of contemporary debates.

Viva Arte Viva is also an exclamation, an expression of the passion for art and for the state of the artist. Viva Arte Viva is a Biennale designed with the artists, by the artists and for the artists. It deals with the forms they propose, the questions they pose, the practices they develop and the forms of life they choose.”
