2013 Limited Edition Venice Biennale Artists Trading Cards are here! By Eric Hess, Anna Salmeron, and Bo Petran


They’re here!

The Biennial Project 2013 Limited Edition Venice Biennale Artist Trading Cards!

Unique and beautiful laminated cards bearing photos and background on 54 artists chosen to represent their countries at the 55th Venice Biennale.

You know you don’t have time to research so many artists all on your own, so take advantage of us having already done the work.

Get immediate access to all kinds of fascinating info on this year’s artists and their backgrounds and processes.

Every time you visit a Pavilion, pull out your deck of cards to find out more fun stuff about the artist who created the work in front of you. 

The cards are the size of real playing cards and are enclosed in a neat plastic case – making it super easy to carry them around in your pocket for easy access.

And what’s cooler than recognizing an internationally renowned artist when they’re sitting next to you on a water taxi or at dinner?

Make a game of it – see how many artists you can see during your time in Venice, and get them to autograph your cards for the memento of a lifetime.

These cards are guaranteed to make your Venice Biennale trip more fun and fruitful.

The MUST HAVE accessory for anyone going to the 2013 Venice Biennale!

There are only 100 of these sets in existence, and when they are gone, that’s it.

Get yours now, at a pre-opening price of $25 plus shipping.

Once we take off for Venice next week, the price goes up dramatically - so take advantage of this special limited-time offer available to our faithful fans.


Here’s a sneak peak of a few of  these super cool cards:
