Venice Biennale 2019

Installation View: “May You Live In Interesting Times” at Giardini

The 58th Venice Biennale focuses on artists who challenge existing habits of thought and open up our readings of objects and images. Featuring more than 70 artists and curated by Ralf Rugoff, the biennale runs from 11 May until 24 November 2019. Here's our first impressions of the international exhibition at Giardini.
