Under the title “Imagined Borders,” the biennale will showcase the works of 153 artists from 41 countries, spread across a series of seven independently curated thematic exhibitions. The 2018 edition will see the inclusion of the largest number of Asian artists to date, with more than half of the participants coming from the region.
