The Venice Biennale has been, for over a century, one of the most prestigious cultural institutions in the world.
Ever since its foundation in 1895, it has been in the avant-garde, promoting new artistic trends and organising international events in contemporary arts. It is world-beating for the International Film Festival, for the International Art Exhibition and for the International Architecture Exhibition, and continues the great tradition of the Festival of Contemporary Music, the Theatre Festival, now flanked by the Festival of Contemporary Dance.
In the 1930s new festivals were born: Music, Cinema, and Theatre (the Venice Film Festival in 1932 was the first film festival ever organized). In 1980 the first International Architecture Exhibition took place, and in 1999 Dance made its debut at the Venice Biennale.
This year the biennale will hold the 55th International Art Exhibition (1 June to 24 November), the 42nd International Theatre Festival (1 to 11 August), the 70th Venice International Film Festival (28 August to 7 September), and the 57th International Festival of Contemporary Music (4 to 13 October).
New permanent activities run alongside these major events, thanks to the newly available refurbished permanent sites in Venice (Ca’ Giustinian and the Sala delle Colonne for exhibitions and meetings; area for kids; new Biennale Library-ASAC at Giardini for study, research and meetings; Workshops and Educational activities featuring master classes, projects for schools and guided tours; in addition to the Historical Archives of the Biennale at ASAC-VEGA and its collections available for consultation).
With so many options, Venice is certainly a place to be.
