In an historic first, the Nordic Pavilion in the Giardini della Biennale is transforming into ‘The Sámi Pavilion’, with a project commissioned by Office for Contemporary Art Norway (OCA) featuring the Sámi artists Pauliina Feodoroff, Máret Ánne Sara and Anders Sunna.
`The Sámi Pavilion´ celebrates the art and sovereignty of the Indigenous Sámi people, whose nation extends across the Nordic countries and into the Kola Peninsula in Russia.
The Sámi Pavilion exhibition is curated by a group consisting of Sámi scholar Liisa-Rávná Finbog, Director and Chief Curator of OCA Katya García-Antón, and Sámi land guardian Beaska Niillas; curatorial assistants: Liv Brissach, Raisa Porsanger and Martina Petrelli.
ÁRRAN 360° is presented as an official part of the extended program of ´The Sámi Pavilion´ at the 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale de Venezia. The project is developed in close collaboration with the Office for Contemporary Art Norway and funded by the Norwegian Film Institute.
The arena is custom designed as a traditional lávvu with a 360 degree screen.
The ÁRRAN 360° lávvu will be located in the middle of Venice's famous lagoon, on the island of San Servolo, in the yard of Venice International University. San Servolo is conveniently located in between the Giardini della Biennale and the island of Lido, the location of the Venice Film Festival.
San Servolo is accessible by vaparetto (boat bus), from St Marcs Square (Piazza San Marco) and Lido.
ÁRRAN 360° is a project initiated by International Sámi Film Institute and developed in close collaboration with the Office for Contemporary Art Norway and the Norwegian Film Institute.

Office for Contemporary Art Norway (OCA) is a non-profit foundation created by the Norwegian Ministries of Culture and of Foreign Affairs in 2001. Its principle aim is to foster dialogue between art practitioners in Norway, including Sápmi, and the international arts scene, through discursive programs and exhibitions, and support artists based in Norway in their activities around the world. OCA has been responsible for Norway’s contribution to the visual arts section of La Biennale di Venezia since 2001.
