Venice Biennale Postpones Architectural Festival; Film Festival Still on

SOAVE, Italy — Given the uncertainty of travel and safety precautions because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Venice Biennale said Monday that the architectural exhibit won’t take place this year after all.

The event has instead been delayed until 2021, forcing the postponement of the contemporary art exhibit to 2022.

The postponements are ‘’an acknowledgement that it is impossible to move forward — within the set time limits — in the realization of such a complex and worldwide exhibition,’’ the Biennale said.

The Venice Biennale still plans to hold the 77th annual film festival from Sept. 2-12, as well as festivals dedicated to theater, contemporary music and contemporary dance scheduled between September and October.

The Biennale had originally postponed the architecture show, titled “How will we live together?” to late August for a three-month run, half the usual. The new dates are May 22-Nov. 21, 2021, while the contemporary art show will run from April 23-Nov. 27, 2022, one month longer than usual.
