So not only was Venice amazing to see.. but we got to see the 53rd Biennale!! 

There was almost too much art to even blog about.. but here are some of the high points from one day's art walk in Venice.

Photo #1 - Actually this is the Entrance to the "Making Worlds" show curated by Daniel Birnbaum at the Giardini.

The following photos (Taken by MAO)

are all works presented at this one exhibition hall at the Giardini which was about half of the curated "Non-National Pavilion" show.

Galaxy Forming along Filaments, like Droplets along the Strands of a Spider's. It filled the entire room probably roughly..a  30 feet by 30 feet cube installation.

Wolfgang_Tillmans_Venice_BiennalePhoto #3 Wolfgang Tillmans, An entire room of his photos. Wolfgang, was one of the only photographers to be included into this years Biennale.

Richard_wentworth_false_ceilingPhoto #4 work by Richard Wentworth.

A new artist to MAO, Richard had 2 sculptural  installations where he's separated familiar objects from their normal surroundings and placed then into new constellations. Quite whimsical!

This work was titled.. False Ceiling.

Spencer_finch_Venice_biennale Photo #5 Spencer Finch.

This was one of 3 works Spencer Finch had included into the Biennale.

I think this one work attempts to recreates candle light as observed by Spencer.

Rachel_khedoori_BiennalePhoto #6 Rachel Khedoori

This Sculpture recreates a labyrinthine cave tunnel system...in miniature plaster. We think this work was just titled "Cave" but not 100% sure.

Simon_Starling Photo #7 work by Simon Starling

A film and sculpture.. titled.. Wilhem Noack oHG. This photo MAo took was just a picture of the "projector" which was showing a film about a company of metal fabricators in Germany.
