We have received word from La Biennale di Venezia that the Russian Federation’s curator and artists have resigned, cancelling their participation in the 59th event.

‘La Biennale expresses its complete solidarity for this noble act of courage and stands beside the motivations that have led to this decision, which dramatically epitomizes the tragedy that has beset the entire population of Ukraine,’ said the Biennale’s organizers.

‘La Biennale remains a place where peoples meet in art and culture, and condemns all those who use violence to prevent dialogue and peace.’
