2nd and 3rd February, 2017 at Ca’ Giustinian, Venice

On Thursday February 2nd and Friday February 3rd, the international symposium NEXUS PAVILION of Science, Technology and Art at La Biennale di Venezia, organized by La Biennale di Venezia and the CONNECT General Direction of the European Commission, will be held in Venice at Ca’ Giustinian.
With this initiative, La Biennale prefaces the opening of its 57th International Art Exhibition with a "virtual" Pavilion called NEXUS PAVILION, that will feature the participation of important artists, musicians, curators and leading figures in the world of research, institutions and industry, to discuss the real exchange between Art and Technology, and how to improve the existing relationship between Art, Science and Technology.
In the historic headquarters of the Biennale (Ca' Giustinian), across two days of debate, artists and musicians will talk about real and significant cases of practices that bring together art and technology, curators will offer a critical analysis of the new practices and new creative scenarios, and researchers will discuss their experiences.
The NEXUS PAVILION symposium to be held February 2nd and 3rd – which follows the previous symposium organized in Venice in November 2015 (Nexus1 Creation at the Nexus of Science Technology and Art) – will be introduced Thursday February 2nd at 11 am by the President of the Biennale Paolo Baratta, by Eva Kaili (Greece, European Parliament) and by Ralph Dum (European Commission).
