Dreaming of Venice, Italy? Maybe you have had your eye on La Biennale di Venezia or Venice Biennial, the major contemporary art exhibition held there every other year, but just haven’t made it yet. This weekend if you are in Southern California, specifically the Los Angeles area, and want to try the next best thing, have I got an opportunity for you! The Venice Beach Biennial will be held on the Ocean Front Walk.
In conjunction with the Made In LA 2012 project and directed by the curator of the Hammer Museum, Ali Subotnick, there will be over fifty fine artists combined with the veteran boardwalk artists displaying their works. In some instances, the fine artists will be collaborating with the boardwalk artists on projects. The display areas are the Boardwalk and the Recreation and Parks area near Windward Plaza (adjacent to Muscle Beach and the Graffiti Wall). For a list of the participating artists and more information click here.
The hours are: Friday July 13 and Saturday July 14 from 11AM-sunset
Sunday July 15 from 11AM-6PM
So head on over to Venice Beach take in some art and enjoy the sunset.
To really make your Venice experience complete, you could also take a stroll through the local canals.
