Peeking In (and Back Out) at the Punta Della Dogana

The Grand Canal you probably recognize, but the strands of light bulbs are from the artist Sturtevant's work Felix Gonzalez-Torres, AMERICA AMERICA; part of the long-running exhibition In Praise of Doubt


  1. Thanks for sharing this photo, Sig. Nonloso. Felix Gonzales-Torres was the US artist for Venice Biennale many years's great to see his work again. Happy Easter to you!

    1. I like the work of Gonzalez-Torres also, but the odd thing about this is that it seems to be the exact duplication of a Gonzalez-Torres work done by another artist to call into question ideas of originality etc etc etc... and endless text follows. Sometimes I just want to have a material experience of art, not a conceptual one; I've sometimes gone to the Biennale & found myself confronted with more text than if I'd stayed home and read all of Henry James' novella "The Aspern Papers". Anyway, since I'm late for Easter, Buona Pasquetta to you!
