Artlovers unite @ La Biennale di Venezia

Hellooo, the same post again, but with better pictures!  (I finally have my computer back)

A little while ago, Husbundy and I visited the Art biënnale in Venice before it ends 24th of November.
We headed straight for the Arsenale where a curator is in charge and makes one big theme-exhibition with artists from all over the world. The location is magnificent, and is still used for some part by the army.

In the Giardini on the other hand, every country has his own pavilion, and the ones who have not can use different locations trougout the city.

Both locations are a 10 minute walk from San Marco square.

Allright, what cought my attention?

Een tijdje terug bezocht ik met husbandy de Kunst Biennale van Venetië voor ze afloopt op 24 november.
Het ging in een rechte lijn naar de Arsenale, waar een curator een thema tentoonstelling samenstelt met artiesten van overal ter wereld. De verbluffende locatie is nog steeds voor een deel in gebruik door het leger.

In de Giardini daarentegen heeft elk land zijn paviljoen en diegenen zonder stellen tentoon doorheen de stad.

Beide locaties bevinden zich op 10 min wandelen van het San Marco plein.

Ok, waar viel mijn oog op?
