In 2024, expectations are sky-high, with emerging and established artists presenting works ranging from immersive installations to bold explorations of the boundaries of art. This year’s theme, ‘Foreigners Everywhere‘, promises to transform Venice into a global stage, bringing an unprecedented flurry of creativity to Cannaregio, with a special focus on environmental sustainability. According to Pedrosa, has more than one meaning. Firstly, it means that wherever you go and wherever you are, you will always meet foreigners: they are/we are everywhere.
Secondly, regardless of one’s location, deep down one is always truly a foreigner.
