9 Yale Alumni Artists at the 60th Venice Biennale

The 60th exhibition of the Venice Biennale opens on April 20th. This show’s theme Foreigners Everywhere, takes the term “foreigner,” to refer broadly to all manner of marginalizations from mainstream society. With 331 artists represented in the main exhibition (including 3 Yale alumni artists) and many more in simultaneous national exhibitions around Venice (including 3 more Yale alumni artists), the show promises to highlight the diversity of arts and culture from around the globe.
