Venezia Biennale

La Biennale is in full swing and I was there for the 54th Art Exhibition preview last week in Venice, Italy. It was very refreshing to see upcoming artists from countries around the world take part in such a cultural experience. La Biennale is a bi-annual cultural event that encompasses Art, Cinema (the famous International Film Festival), Architecture, Dance, Music, and Theater. The Art Exhibition features pavilions for participating countries showcasing some of their most promising talent. The art crowd was in full attendance and Venice was transformed into a cultural exhibit of it's own right.

Outside the America Pavilion Artist Allora & Calzadilla present Gloria; an Olympic Athlete powering a tank by running on a treadmill.

Now a trip to Venice can mean only one thing...strappy high heels (the higher the better), and a short colorful dress. Italian woman staples (think Missoni)...

Venice had exhibitions everywhere you went. These folks were floating on the side of the canal one morning!
For dinner at Gritti Palace on a warm night I sported a Yumi Kim Playsuit, Alaia Heels, and a Chanel Clutch. To top it off I wore bright red lipstick! However I'm missing the tan...

Ciao Venezia!
