Last week, the Brazilian curator of the 60th Venice Biennale, Adriano Pedrosa, announced the full list of artists he has selected for the 2024 edition of this iconic exhibition.

Curated to meet the theme Stranieri Ovunque – Foreigners Everywhere, Pedrosa has chosen 332 artists – most of whom have been marginalised in some way. This idea is reflected in Pedrosa’s artist list, which includes two First Nations Australian artists – Marlene Gilson (Wathaurung/Wadawurrung) and Naminapu Maymuru-White (Yolŋu/Maŋgalili clan) – and four artists from Aotearoa New Zealand, as well as the Mataaho Collective, a collaboration of four Māori women.
