Armenia Wins “Best National Participation” Award at Venice Biennale

Armenia walked away with the Golden Lion for the Best National Participation award at the 56th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale.

The awards of the International Jury noted in its decision:

The Golden Lion for the national pavilion goes to Republic of Armenia for forming a pavilion based on a people in diaspora, each artist engaging their specific locality as well as their heritage. The pavilion took the form of a palimpsest, with contemporary positions inserted into a site of historic preservation. In a year that witnesses a significant milestone for the Armenian people, this pavilion marks the resilience of trans-cultural confluence and exchanges.

The Awards Ceremony of the 56th International Art Exhibition took place on May 9th 2015 at Ca’ Giustinian.
