Greetings from the Venice Biennale

As you can guess from the Jean-Marc Fray instagram, we are on one of many shopping trips in Venice. Our first stop is the famous Venice Biennale. It’s our place to be inspired before we procure antiques for the gallery
For more than a century, the Venice Biennale has been an international exhibition for contemporary works of art. The exhibit this year is The World’s Futures and was curated by Okwui Enwezor. There are pieces from over 136 artists representing 53 countries. 
We spent majority of our time in the Arsenale roaming, and our iPhones are full of avant-garde images from inspiring artists. We thought we’d share a few with you here. Enjoy!
