Ghana makes pavilion debut at 2019 Venice Biennale art show

In Venice, 90 countries are making their own artistic statements but one new arrival is already leading the pack.

    The Venice Biennale is an opportunity for over half a million visitors to travel around the world of art without leaving Venice.

    Ninety counties are represented by individual pavilions, giving a snapshot of their artistic output.

    After 57 years of no presence, Ghana has its first national pavilion and has brought an extra element of energy to the art competition.

    Al Jazeera's Charlie Angela reports from Venice.
