Here comes this time of the year again: Venice Biennale It is.

The Venice Biennale has for over a century been one of the most prestigious cultural institutions in the world. Established in 1895, the Biennale has an attendance today of over 370,000 visitors at the Art Exhibition.

 

The 56th iteration of the world-famous Venice Biennale is scheduled to officially open its doors on Saturday May 9th, 2015 until November 22, 2015, featuring 136 artists, many of them emerging and new talents. 

The main exhibit is titled All the World's Futures and is curated by Okwui Enwezor. 

 Taking over the Biennale Gardens and Arsenal 136 artists from 53 countries, of whom 89 will be showing for the first time will be exhibiting their work on the pavilions and all around the city of Venice.

Of course, in addition to the Biennale itself, there are countless collateral gallery shows and installations throughout the city.


All the World’s Futures main focus is on a body of new works commissioned from artists specially for the 56th Art Biennale, while also featuring a selected series of anthologies treating the historical perspectives by living and deceased artists. 

From text based neon sculptures by Bruce Nauman, an atlas of Harun Farocki’s filmography, the work of photographer Walker Evans, installations by Isa Genzken and Hans Haacke, to paintings by Tetsuya Ishida.

 It is not an overstatement to say that this 56th edition of Venice Biennale will be one to remember, and not only because of the extensive excerpt of works on display, but above all for the 120th celebration of the Biennale worldwide epic cultural existence. 

“This is our 56th edition. The Biennale is now 120 years old, and year after year it moves forward and builds on its own history, which is formed of many memories but, in particular, a long succession of different perspectives from which to observe the phenomenon of contemporary artistic creation.”
