Billed this year as a celebration of the defiant spirit, the exhibition will bring together some of the most revolutionary artists the world has ever known alongside the shining stars of today. The theme of the 16th Biennale, Revolutions – Forms That Turn, suggests the impulse to revolt, a desire for change, and seeing the world differently. Many works in this year’s exhibition will be participatory, encouraging people to step inside art and discover new ways of looking and thinking about life today. Movement is a strong feature – works turn, spin, go in reverse, mirror, make noise and even blow up. The free exhibition is expected to welcome more than a quarter of a million visitors, and more than 180 artists from 42 countries including 65 new art works, presented alongside some of the world’s most ground-breaking art from the avant-gardes of last century.
