Artists are the guiding force behind VIVA ARTE VIVA and they are given the opportunity to be heard. Every week, during the six months of the exhibition, artists host an Open Table (Tavola Aperta) and meet visitors over a casual lunch to hold a lively conversation about their practice. These events are held in two dedicated spaces refurbished for this purpose in front of the Central Pavilion of the Giardini and in the new Sale d’Armi in the Arsenale.
