The 55th International Art Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia is under the artistic direction of Massimiliano Gioni and is entitled Il Palazzo Enciclopedico / The Encyclopedic Palace.

The exhibition will place at its heart "a reflection on the ways in which images have been used to organize knowledge and shape our experience of the world." Inspired by what scholar Hans Belting has called "an anthropology of images", the Biennale Arte 2013 will attempt "an inquiry into the realms of the imaginary and the functions of imagination."
