I'll be headed to Italy soon, with just enough time to attend the opening ceremony of the Arte Laguna Prize Finalist Exhibition in Venice at the Arsenale.
From the official site:
"The Arte Laguna Prize is exhibiting 125 works from around the world, the finalists of the eleventh edition of the contest, which give us a glimpse into the current state of international contemporary art.
The exhibition is curated by Igor Zanti with the collaboration of ten international jurors who assessed and selected all the applicants... Flavio Arensi, Tamara Chalabi, Paolo Colombo, Suad Garayeva, Ilaria Gianni, Emanuele Montibeller, Salvador Nadales, Fatos Ustek, Alma Zevi and Nav Haq."
Take the Water-bus, 5.2 Line, and get off at the Celestia Stop.
Then I'll be back on a plane on my way back to the (unfortunately much less moisture-laden) desert of Tucson. If you're nearby, come and join the festivities.
