The National Gallery of Zimbabwe announced it will stage a pavilion at the 2017 Venice Biennale. It will be the country’s fourth participation in Venice.

The pavilion’s artists are yet to be announced.

Raphael Chikukwa, chief curator of the National Gallery of Zimbabwe stated “As I always say, it is important to acknowledge the artists themselves, because there is no exhibition without an artist. Without artists, museums and galleries would be shut down” commeting the theme chosen by Christine Macel for the upcoming Biennale.
