Take a deep dive with 92Y Art Center experts at the Venice Biennale – the most historic and important international show of contemporary art in the world! Obtain exclusive access to some of Venice’s spectacular Renaissance palaces and explore the city's premiere art collections, as well as the most significant, rewarding and notable shows in the Biennale.
Our small group tour is hosted by art historian Riva Blumenfeld, who has 40 years of experience as a gallery director/owner, art advisor for collectors, as well as an art educator at NYC’s top museums – including the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney, and Guggenheim focusing on school, family and access groups. She’ll guide participants through the dizzying array of exhibitions, with exclusive access to exhibitions usually closed to the public housed in Venice’s spectacular Renaissance palaces.
