Venice Italy Venice Biennale

Venice Biennale is the most celebrated modern art exhibition, taking place each two years (odd years).

It comprises the Venice Film Festival and Venice Architecture Biennale. First time it was held in 1895, during the first exhibitions decorative arts played the leading role. It quickly gained international popularity, after World War I it showed increasing interest in the new tendencies in modern art. In the 1930s were established several new sections, such as the Music Festival, International Film Festival, Theatre Festival. After World War II it became a tribune for avant-garde movements in European, later world art. It began to host abstract expressionism, later pop-art. Thematic exhibitions instead of monographic ones became more frequent, several exhibitions, i8nspired by political protest movement or inspired by world ideology tendencies, were held. For example, the 1974 edition was dedicated to Chile under the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet. New prizes – Golden Lions, like the awards for the Venice Film Festivals, were introduced. Postmodern art began to take over the exhibition. Larger representation of Asia and Eastern Europe since late 1990s – 2000, marked the worldwide triumph of the event.

The formal Biennale is based at a park the Giardini that houses 30 permanent national pavilions. There is no single format to how each represented country manages it pavilion. The Giardini includes a large exhibition hall that houses a themed exhibition curetted by the Biennale's director. The Aperto began as a fringe event for younger artists and artists of a national origin not represented by the permanent national pavilions. The exhibitions are believed to amaze rather than amuse, with often shocking compositions, using space and light as well as conventional and unconventional materials. Biennale is appreciated by both vanguard art lovers, postmodernism gurus and eclectic young crowd, predominantly art students.
