Viva Arte Viva

While the exhibition curated by Christine Macel includes many new names, the overall result is somewhat ordinary: it seems to offer less than the enthusiastic title promises and fails to generate anything new. #BiennaleArte2017

The mountain

The Egyptian pavilion at the Biennale Arte 2017 in Venice features Moataz Nasr’s video fable. Shot in a village in the Egyptian countryside, it tells of the fear that inhibits action, an experience common to humanity. #BiennaleArte2017

Life in the folds

The composite work of Carlos Amorales mixes print, sculpture and cinema to give shape to an installation of great formal rigour, which comes to life thanks to music. #BiennaleArte2017

Pae White: Qwalala

In the installation at Le Stanze del Vetro, in Venice, every hand-cast brick is unique, owing much to chance and variation inherent in the manufacturing process. #BiennaleArte2017



Cevdet Erek, Çın

The Turkish Pavilion is an expression of the collective hardship felt by a part of the country which has been deprived of its voice. An unexpected, subtle yet bold work. #BiennaleArte2017
