La Biennale di Venezia (Venice Biennale), organisers of the Venice Architecture Biennale and the Venice Art Biennale, has announced the postponement of two of the most anticipated art and architectural festivals in the world because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

The 17th edition of the Venice Architecture Biennale titled “How Will We Live Together?”, originally planned for May 23 – November 29 2020, has been postponed twice. First, the opening was pushed back to August 2020, then, in view of persisting global health concerns, it will no longer hold this year.

A decision was reached to postpone the event to May 22 – November 2021, ultimately leading to the postponement of the Venice Art Biennale from next year to April 23 – November 27 2022, with Cecilia Alemani as artistic director and curator

With the new dates, Hashim Sarkis, curator of the Architecture Biennale anticipates that the added time will allow them to catch their breath, and complete their work with the vigour it deserves. The international exhibition will host the initially selected 114 participants including Nigerian artist and architect, Peju Alatise, and other African artists such as Olalekan Jeyifous, Mpho Matsipa, Paula Nascimento, and K63.STUDIO – Osborne Macharia.
