It’s Sandró, About Biennale

We spent our last day in Venice poking around the modern art scene. First was the 51st La Biennale, which was pretty excellent, not least of all because we finally understood one obscure joke from The Big Lebowski. The highlight for us was the exhibit from the excellent Guerilla Girls, who you may have read about in a recent New Yorker. (Here’s a page specifically devoted to their work at Biennale.)

Then we headed over to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, which alongside Paris’s Museu Picasso earned Rockingest Museum honors 2005. That a traveling Jackson Pollack exhibit just happened to be there was icing on the cake.

I used to want to be a rock star, but now I just wish I could paint.
