On 31 May 2013, the South African Consul-General in Milan, Mr Saul Kgomotso Molobi, as Commissioner of the South African Pavilion at the 55th International Art Exhibition at the Venice Biennale, welcomed the Honourable South African Minister of Arts and Culture, Mr Paul Mashatile and his high-level delegation and accompanied them during their two-day visit to this prestigious contemporary art exhibition taking place in Venice from 1 June to 24 November 2013. The South African Ambassador in Rome, Ms Nomatemba Tambo, also joined the Minister during his visit.

Minister Mashatile, who has for the first time obtained a permanent space for South Africa for the next 20 years in one of the renovated pavilions of La Biennale, officially opened the South African pavilion on 31 May 2013. The opening was well attended by approximately 200 people, amongst whom were media representatives, key stakeholders from the arts sector, academia and the general public.


It is the second time that South Africa is participating at a national level. This year the exhibition titled Imaginary Fact; Contemporary South African Art and the Archive, aims to showcase established and upcoming artists who use materials of the past to comment on the contemporary.
