Venice Biennale 2024, tickets, pavilions, side events, what to see and where to go.
In 2024, Venice will once again become the hub of international art with the 60th International Art Exhibition, entitled ‘Stranieri Ovunque – Foreigners Everywhere’, curated by Adriano Pedrosa.

This evocative title, inspired by a work by the Claire Fontaine collective, profoundly expresses the cultural diversity and fluidity of identities in today’s global context.

In this post you will find all the updates on the Venice Biennale 2024 what to see, where to go and what to do 😉

Curator Adriano Pedrosa, with a keen eye for social issues, has chosen a perfect title to reflect on the concepts of movement, existence and identity through the prism of global crises.
The title ‘Strangers Everywhere’ refers not only to the ubiquitous presence of foreigners, but also to the intrinsic feeling of foreignness that one can experience anywhere in the world.

The Biennale Arte 2024 will therefore become a melting pot of artists representing diversity: foreigners, immigrants, exiles, queers, outsiders, and indigenous artists, all sharing their unique experiences through art.
The exhibition will highlight both a Contemporary Core and a Historical Core, the latter focusing on 20th century works from different parts of the world, including a special section devoted to Italian artists in diaspora.

With its variety of works and artists, the Biennale Arte 2024 promises to be an exciting and enlightening experience, an invitation to reflect on our understanding of art, culture and identity in an increasingly interconnected world.
Venice awaits everyone in 2024 to celebrate and discover together this extraordinary global mosaic of art and culture.


Adriano Pedrosa, known for his creativity and innovative vision, is the first Latin American curator to lead the Art Biennale.
His approach aims to change the traditional point of view in contemporary art, not only aesthetically but also geographically. Pedrosa emphasises artists who, despite coming from different cultures, have maintained ties to their cultural roots.

Besides providing a platform for international artists, the 60th International Art Exhibition focuses on South American artists, emphasising their significant contribution to world art. The Biennale aims to fill the gaps in art history, bringing to light hitherto neglected voices.


The Art Biennale will open on 20 April 2024 and close on 24 November 2024.

The presentations of the National Pavilions begin, outlining their projects and defining the various themes being addressed by the invited artists.

In fact, the Art Biennale 2024 will be flanked by 90 National Participations in Pavilions located at the Giardini, Arsenale and scattered throughout the historic center of Venice.
Four countries are present for the first time at the Art Biennale: Republic of Benin, Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of Timor Leste, and United Republic of Tanzania. Nicaragua, Republic of Panama and Senegal are participating for the first time with their own pavilions.

The Pavilion of Argentina features artist Luciana Lamothe and curator Sofia Dourron, who present a project entitled “Hope the Doors Collapse.” A new (La Biennale Arte 2024-specific) large-scale installation is presented, consisting of four structures conceived around the architecture of the Argentine pavilion, which are built from iron scaffolding, curved phenolic ribbons, and a series of sculptures made of wood scraps, burned and cut, branches and logs. The structures, linked together, will be able to be walked through by visitors. The work will be made entirely in Venice using locally salvaged materials, and at the end of the exhibition each element will be returned to its place of origin.

The Pavilion of the Republic of San Marino presents “Nomader,” a project by artist Eddie Martinez and will be hosted at La Fucina del Futuro.
Details of the project can be found in the post Discovering the San Marino Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2024 with the works of Eddie Martinez, which contains an in-depth look at the significance of and connection to the “Strangers Everywhere” theme of the 2024 Biennale.

The Italian Pavilion at the Tese delle Vergini in the Arsenale, supported and promoted by the General Directorate for Contemporary Creativity of the Ministry of Culture, is curated by Luca Cerizza, with the project Due qui / To hear by artist Massimo Bartolini, which includes contributions specially conceived by female musicians and writers.

The Pavilion of the Holy See, sponsored by the Prefect of the Holy See’s Dicastery for Culture and Education, Cardinal José Tolentino de Mendonça, will take place this year in the Venice Women’s Prison in Giudecca. The exhibition is entitled With My Eyes and is curated by Chiara Parisi and Bruno Racine.

The City of Venice is participating with its own Pavilion, the Venice Pavilion, at the Giardini di Sant’Elena.
