Great art picks up where nature ends.

To see Venice in a grain of sand

“To see a world in a grain of sand, and heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.” William Blake, Auguries of Innocence.

Palazzo Gumgum (Homage to all Venice Biennale Exhibition Interns)

I believe everyone has a travel buddy, be it a person or a pet, or simply a best friend like Mr Bean’s Teddy. For me, my buddy is Gumgum, a tiny yellow bunny. (OK…slightly larger than tiny) Gumgum traveled extensively with me across continents and we have explored half of the globe together. Like any of our previous voyages, Gumgum has been tagged along after me during this 6-week long internship in Venice, Italy.

Tired of Being Tired: Accessibility and Accommodation

 

Having spent several weeks in the pavilion, I have gotten a pretty good feel for the types of visitors that enter through our doors: The experienced art critic, the hyperactive child, the gelato-eating tourist (with melted gelato trickling down their hand, threatening to drip onto the pavilion floor) who is then unfortunately turned away from the exhibit…. but hey, who can resist the sweet satisfaction of a cold gelato on a hot summer day?

"Coke or Pepsi?" with Samson Young

After the madness of Venice Biennale opening week, I caught up with Samson for a quick game of “Coke or Pepsi?” with questions ranging from the musical to hypothetical to purely random. His answers are, to say the least, unexpected (or are they completely expected?) Decipher for yourselves and enjoy!
