The Venice Biennale is a major contemporary art exhibition that takes place once every two years in Venice, Italy. The Biennale happens across the city but its two main sites are at the Giardini and the old shipyard at Arsenale.
This year’s Biennale brings together over one hundred and fifty artists from more than eighty countries, with each country staging competing exhibitions in their national pavilions.
The worlds of art and design so often overlap that this year, instead of going to my usual design haunts, I decided to visit the Venice Biennale to see the work of some of the worlds leading and upcoming artists.
Blurring the line between professional artists and amateurs, the exhibition aims to bring the many infinite worlds of contemporary art to life in a single place. It was a weird and wonderful experience, full of surprises and intense moments, from the imagined to the real, the individual to the collective, the modern to the historic.
