Biennale 2024, “Stranieri Ovunque – Foreigners Everywhere”

The title chosen for the 2024 edition is Stranieri Ovunque – Foreigners Everywhere, taken from a series of neon works created in the early 2000s by the Claire Fontaine collective.

How is it organized?

The Biennale 2024 is divided into two main nuclei, the contemporary section and the historical one.

In the first section, 4 categories of artists often considered “foreigners” in their own communities will be better investigated: the queer artist, the outsider artist, the indigenous artist and the folk artist.

As regards the historical section, however, it will include 20th century artworks from Latin America, Africa, Asia and the Arab world. There are three rooms in the Central Pavilion: the room entitled Portraits, the room of Abstractions and a third dedicated to the Italian artistic diaspora in the world throughout the 20th century.
