Venice Biennale 2022: Official Collateral Events Guide – Artlyst

Venice Biennale Collateral Events

This year, the Venice Biennale offers 30 official collateral events that the curators have sanctioned. They will run at the same time as the Biennale.

The Collateral Events series is a strong tradition of the Art Biennale in Venice, which occurs in parallel with the presentations of the national pavilions in the Arsenale and Giardini during each edition. Selected by exhibition curator Cecilia Alemani, the Collateral Events are an integral part of this year’s main show featuring 31 presentations.

This year’s events deeply engage with the present and reflect on the circumstances that define humanity today. There will be exhibitions that address information overload, environmental protection, global crises and conflicts and the search for spirituality. It is also an opportunity to meet various artists through an extensive range of themes.

Here is the complete list of official collateral events taking place during the 59th Venice Biennale
