What To Catch At The Venice Biennale 2024: Insider Tips For The Artfully Curious

Mark your calendars, art aficionados, and culture vultures! The 60th edition of La Biennale di Venezia is about to unfurl its canvas of wonders starting April 20, 2024. For the insiders and art professionals, the curtain rises a tad earlier, April 17. Imagine the Olympics of the art world—less sprinting, more pondering, and Champagne in place of sports beverages. This year’s curator, the esteemed Adriano Pedrosa of Latin American origin (a first for the Biennale), unveils “Stranieri Ovunque – Foreigners Everywhere.” It’s a profound exploration into the essence of being a stranger, aiming to illuminate the narratives of those often left in the shadows. Embarking on this year’s theme, Pedrosa draws inspiration from the thought-provoking work of the Paris-born, Palermo-based collective Claire Fontaine, known since 2004 for their neon sculptures that spell out “Foreigners Everywhere” in a kaleidoscope of languages. This vibrant homage is not just artistic flair; it echoes the sentiments of the Turin collective Stranieri Ovunque, warriors against racism and xenophobia in the early 2000s. With a list of 332 participants, alongside the Central Exhibition and the National Pavilions, additional displays and events will emerge, overtaking historic locations across the Venetian canals.

Museum Mischief: Employee’s Artistic Ambition Takes Center Stage

In Munich’s Pinakothek der Moderne, renowned for modernist gems by Picasso among others, visitors were surprised to find the unauthorized artwork of a 51-year-old museum employee displayed alongside masterpieces. Police revealed the employee who worked within the technical services department alongside describing himself as a freelance artist hoped the display would pave the way for future artistic endeavors. The culprit has now been fired and in addition he has also been banned from the gallery.

Banksy Unveils a New Artistic Spectacle of Soho

Following unprecedented public demand – The Art of Banksy – showcasing over 150 original pieces by the elusive Bristol artist, is set to captivate London’s Soho at 100 Charing Cross Road. The show opened this week on 11 April and offers visitors the rare opportunity to immerse themselves in the iconic and thought-provoking works of Banksy.

Victoria Beckham x Mango

It has been revealed that the next Mango designer collab will be with Victoria Beckham. The British designer and Spice Girl’s debut collaboration will feature a range of slip dresses, knitwear, and tailored pieces mirroring her signature style. Drawing inspiration from Jane Birkin’s effortless elegance in “La Piscine,” Beckham infuses the collection with timeless designs and soft pastels, set to launch on April 23 in celebration of Mango’s 40th anniversary.
