ILLUMINATIONS

Art Biennale 4th June > 27th November 2011 The 54th International Art Exhibition, directed by Bice Curiger, is open at the Giardini and Arsenale venues and elsewhere around Venice. I wasn’t at the Venice Biennalethis year. But I got an Short catalog of it. With reading this catalog I made a selection of interesting artists and artworks. This selection is very subjectiv and bases on my own interests and my artistic work:
