Mardi Gras Indians, Personal Structures - Resistance and Resilience, Venice Biennale 2022

The Mardi Gras Indians of New Orleans are proud to announce their inclusion in the Venice Biennale 2022. 


Personal Structures

Palazzo Mora, Venice, Italy


This year's exhibition is titled Personal Structures and the theme centers around conceptions of reflections. Personal Structures presents a selection of nearly 200 participants coming from all corners of the world to express their views on the main theme. 


Personal Structures opens an honest and sincere dialogue, stimulated by differences that leads to a well thought of heightened awareness. The hope is that the awareness about our own Existence should make us care more about everything. It is only after we care that we seem to be willing to change. 


"Personal Structures" presents a small part of the complex development of contemporary art. This exhibition as a total can be seen as an indication of the further global development of contemporary art. This exhibition presents a creative language mainly based upon conceptualizing human expressions in art, rather than focussing on craftsmanship. The exhibited works at our Venice Biennial Art Exhibition, present the awareness of each artist, questioning and reflecting, where do I come from, where am I, and where to go.
