Arts They’re Out in Force at the Venice Biennale
posted by June 7 at 19:13 PMon
The biggest art exhibition in the world has begun to accept visitors, and the critics are blogging. I won’t be able to send updates tomorrow, when many will probably come in, because of Freaky Friday, but I can tell you who’s out there doing what.
The NYT’s arts blog, Artsbeat, looks like it intends to be all over it, with words and pics.
Time critic Richard Lacayo, the best blogging critic for my money, is already in with some preliminary thoughts about Rob Storr’s big show in the big show.
Wish I were there; I’m hoping to go in September. More soon on how the Felix Gonzalez-Torres sculpture of reflecting pools just barely touching (below, installed in the entry courtyard of the US pavilion, photo from the NYT today), almost stood at Western Washington University instead.
