Gearing up for the 2011 Venice Biennale

After art trekking for four days we headed off to the Lido for some quiet beach time.

The art world is gearing up for the 2011 Venice Biennale.  ArtInfo.com posted  “When In Venice” today. Although I am not making the trip this year, it brings to mind our wonderful 2007 Biennale trip.  It was a hot August in Venice but the experience was well worth it. The international pavillions were inpressive but even more interesting were all of the smaller installations skattered in wonderful old building throughout the city.  Ducking into a shadowy (and cool) boat house or chapel and discovering  a video or sound work felt like a secret discovery – magical!
