African Art in Venice Forum

The African Art in Venice Forum (AAVF) is a public and free discursive platform presented every two years in Venice, Italy during the opening week of the Biennale Internazionale dell’Arte di Venezia. The event provides new opportunities to discover, learn, discuss, explore, and exchange topics and projects related to contemporary art from Africa and its diasporas. The AAVF 2024 is presented by African Art Dialogues in collaboration with Strauss & Co and Africa No Filter

We will be hosting the forum on Tuesday, April 16th at the Hotel Monaco and Grand Canal, Venice.
