Venice Biennale is one of the most famous contemporary art events of the world and has been taking place for already more than 120 years. This outstanding art happening happens every two years for a few months and attracts a great number of people from all over the world. This year the 59th International Art Exhibition, The Milk Of Dreams it will be curated by Cecilia Alemani.
On this occasion, Top Venice would like to invite you to a special tour that will help you not to miss the best shows of the International Art Exhibition at Giardini della Biennale – where the main national pavilions are based – and the Arsenale. The Exhibition will take place in the Central Pavilion (Giardini) and in the Arsenale. Our experienced art tour guide will make sure that you will be having a relaxing time and enjoying the city just as much as the arts.
The first day will begin with a visit to the Arsenale. Once the largest production center in Venice during the pre-industrial era it was a huge complex of construction symbol of the economic, political and military power of the city. Since 1980 the Arsenale has become an exhibition site of La Biennale, on the occasion of the 1st International Architecture Exhibition. In these historical spaces, this year’s curator Cecilia Alemani is bringing together the most exciting artists from various countries, leading cultural figures in the art world.
The second day will be followed by the visit to the epicenter of the Biennale, the Giardini. The foreign pavilions were built starting from 1907 and now the Giardini della Biennale is a home for 29 national pavilions, each of them representing a country through the language of architecture and arts. To get a better insight into what the country is putting forward for the art pilgrims, an experienced Top Venice guide will show you around and explain to you in detail the significance of some of them.
The Biennale tour will be concluded with some other collateral events.
