The fourth edition of the Venice Design Biennial presents its programme of live exhibitions from May 19 to June 182023. Once again, we weave the relationship between contemporary design and some evocative places in Venice, in parallel with the Architecture Biennale.

The theme of this edition, proposed by the curators and founders of the project Luca Berta and Francesca Giubilei, is Auto-Exotic. The traditional concept of exoticism, steeped in stereotypes, is rethought through the lens of design. The exhibition programme unfold across four different locations, along with the Collateral Projects.
