Scoletta dei Tiraoro e Battiori, Campo San Stae, Santa Croce
Vaporetto Stop: San Stae
The Nigerian Pavilion and its exhibiting artists are proud to announce that its debut participation for the Biennale Arte 2017 will be at one of Venice's historic venues, erected in 1711. The Scoletta dell’Arte dei Tiraoro e Battioro was the home of the Guild of artists and makers of gold thread and gold leaf. It is erected right next to the Church of Sant’Eustachio, known as San Stae. The venue has a grand interior space, befitting of Nigeria's inaugural exhibition in Venice and effortlessly carries the power of the works of all three artists showcasing sculpture, installation and performance.
