The 2017 Biennale boasts 120 artists representing 51 countries and 87 national pavilions. Uniquely, each pavilion unveils the artist’s themes and encapsulates a sense of their homeland. Britain is represented by the sculptor Phyllida Barlow, whose sculptures teetering on the brink of collapse caused a stir in Tate Britain. You should also be sure to see the enigmatic abstract works of Mark Bradford at the US Pavilion. Three young Italian artists, Cuoghi, Husni-Bey and Calò, will be representing their place of birth. Furthermore, four countries will take part for the first time: Antigua and Barbuda, Kazakhstan, Kiribati, and Nigeria.
