In Photos: The 2015 Venice Biennale

The Venice Biennale is perhaps the most important contemporary art event in the world. This year’s iteration includes 89 pavilions in the Giardini and Arsenale, as well as scattered across the city. The central exhibition, titled All the World’s Futures and curated by Okwui Enwezor, includes 136 artists representing 53 countries. There is an endless amount of art to witness and experience and, indeed, many important voices to be heard. The following images offer a tiny glimpse into the 2015 Venice Biennale.
