For those days in Venice we walked down streets so beautiful as to defy description, enjoyed the unfathomable generosity of spirit of the Italians, drank from fountains of prosecco, shared the company of our dearest friends and co-conspirators, swam in an ocean of art, and most importantly lived as artists citizens of some parallel possible world where all countries hold sacred the role of art and artists in defining and maintaining our common humanity. We did (for once) not think about the terror of our current reality, but about the tremulous joy of being alive.
Yep, it was good. And as we now approach the closing of the 2017 Venice Biennale, we’d like to share a few of the artist profiles we did of participating 2017 VB artists. Enjoy them, and if you would like to have your own deck of over 50 artist profiles, let us know and we can send you one for cost plus shipping.

And because we’re nice, here’s a sneak peak of a few of our artist profiles, beginning with Yvonne Apiyo from KENYA – the ONLY artist from KENYA chosen to show her work in the KENYAN pavilion in Venice – who came to our fabulous party in Venice and did an interview with Biennial Project Press – and is so goddamned nice and talented and wonderful that we have to think less of the Swiss for not electing her to office. Feast your eyes………….
