Biennale of Venezia takes every other year in the town of Venezia, Italy. It has an ultimate goal to represent to the public the most significant art created since 2 years in the world and it does not have any commercial intent.
89 countries participated to Biennale in 2015 presenting their own selected artiste or artistes in either their historical pavilions or dedicated spaces. Mainly Biennale takes place areas such as in Giardini and Arsenale, which are part of Venezia and are accessible by foot or boat (so called vaporetto). Also some dedicated spaces are situated all over Venice. And of course many collateral events take place during Biennale. It lasts about 7 months, from May until November in 2015.
Personnally I preferred to wait until November to visit the art festivity, first because I wanted to avoid the summer crowd and secondly because I absolutely desired to see Venezia covered with it’s famous mist. This year theme is “All the World’s Futures”. So we suppose to see how contemporary artists see our common future. Are they optimists or pessimists? I could absolutely not talk about even thousandth of what is to be seen, but I could propose my Biennale sample, art works which attracted my eyes and was carefully selected.
Next Venezia Biennale will take place in 2017
