„In a world full of conflicts and jolts, in which humanism is being seriously jeopardized, art ist he most precious part of the human being. It is the ideal place for reflection, individual expression, freedom and fundamental questions. It is a “yes” to life, although sometimes a “but” lies behind. More than ever, the role, the voice and the responsibility of the artist are crucial in the framework of contemporary debates.” (Christine Macel, curator of the Biennale di Venezia 2017).
The BA CONTEMPORARY 2017 Venezia with the title „LA JOIE DE VIVRE!” will be held during the 57th Venice Biennale from 15 – 29 September 2017 at Galeria Centro D’Arte San Vidal operated by Italian Art Association U.C.A.I. in the Scoletta San Zaccaria, Campo San Zaccaria in Venice.
