Charles Atlas is to be included in Viva Arte Viva, the 57th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, curated by Christine Macel.  The exhibition will feature 120 artists from 51 countries including Charles Atlas. The exhibition will also include 85 national participations featured in the historic pavilions at the Giardini, at the Arsenale, and in the historic city center of Venice. Charles Atlas will present The Tyranny of Consciousness, a five-channel video installation with sound that uniquely combines three lemenets from his 2015 exhibition at Luhring Augustine entitled The Waning of Justice.


Viva Arte Viva is an exclamation, a passionate outcry for art and the state of the artist. Viva Arte Viva is a Biennale designed with artists, by artists and for artists, about the forms they propose, the questions they ask, the practices they develop and the ways of life they choose.
