Art Biennale in Venice

The 54th International Art Exhibition, directed by Bice Curiger, opens on Saturday June 4th at the Giardini and Arsenale venues (Preview on June 1-2-3) and elsewhere around Venice.
The show is titled ILLUMInations and will be set up in the Central Pavilion at Giardini and at the Arsenale forming a single itinerary that features 83 artists from all over the world. Also exhibited 89 National Participations and 37 Collateral Events.
Maurizio Cattelan is one of the many artists whose materpieces will be exhibited.
His art often combines sculpture and  performance. Cattelan has a subtle sense of the paradoxes  of transgression, the limits of tolerance. Since the early 1990s, his work has provoked and challenged  the limits of contemporary value systems through its use  of irony and humor. He teases the art world without ever falling into the naive trap of thinking he can subvert a system of which he is part.
Here are some of his works...
