The 54th International Art Exhibition will open its doors to press, curators and glitterati  from the 1st of June.

Who will win the art competition? This, we will know it on Saturday the 4th of June.

A little inside: La Biennale di Venezia is going to mark an important milestone in the long history attesting the unwavering participation of Argentine art in the Biennial, since it was the first Latin American country to be included in this international exhibition in 1901. On the 3rd June, at the presence of President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, it will be signed the official agreement between the Fundación Exportar and la Biennale di Venezia, that will let Argentina have its permanent Pavilion in the wonderful 500-square-meter spaces of the “Sale d’Armi” at the Arsenal, through their cession to Argentina for the next 22 years.

In the meantime the city is under attack by curators, gallerists, collectors and jet-setter. Boats of all sizes are arriving to Venice and private planes are landing for this mad week of art and party every minute… What a week!
