Hailing from diverse geographies and age groups, Abdoulaye Konate (Mali, b. 53), Gabriel Orozco (Mexico, b. 62), Rina Banerjee (India, b. 63), Ernesto Neto (Brazil, b. 64), Kader Attia (France, b. 70), Erika Verzutti (Brazil, b. 71), Guan Xiao (China, b. 83) and Petrit Halilaj (Skenderaj-Kosovo, b. 86) certainly demonstrated their brilliance and unquestionable talent. We were delighted to see so many of our artists highlighted with quite dominant works.

We would also like to congratulate Petrit Halilaj for being assigned the 2017 Jury Special Mention "For imaginative interventions in the architecture of the Arsenale and Central Pavilion, which create relationships between the history of Kosovo and childhood memories."

We look forward to future projects by these extraordinary talents and wish them much success.
