I’m in Venice at the Biennale Arte. Yesterday we went to the Arsenale – the best part of this huge exhibition. Michelle Stuart is included with a wonderful selection of her work. Michelle has lived for years in Amagansett in the summers. I have always found her work fascinating- references our human relationship.to nature. I curated an exhibition in NY in 1981 on “Women and Nature”and included a piece by her. See label for great description by curator!
Our hotel in Florence looked over the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella and the Plaza. This is a picture from our windows. Our guide was amazing- the head of all the guides there-Mario Carniani. The Renaissance art in the Basilica was the best in all of Florence and our room was only steps away.
