The 57th Venice Biennale, according to its artistic director Christine Macel, celebrates (as the title “Viva Arte Viva” indicates) “the existence of art and artists whose worlds expand our perspectives and the space of our existence.”

Among the 120 participating artists, we are proud to see a number of artists whose work has been featured at the Phillips, is part of our collection, or both. Among them are Sam Gilliam prominently inviting visitors to the Central Pavilion; Xavier Veilhan representing the French Pavilion; McArthur Binion in the Central Pavilion, Zilia Sanchez, Ernesto NetoFranz Erhard Walther in the Arsenale, and Bernardi Roig as part of the INTUITION exhibition at the Palazzo Fortuni. Viva Phillips art(ists)!
