All The World’s Futures, Biennale Arte 2015 – The Bugatti of Art

People everywhere vie for the chance to slip into the driver's seat of a Bugatti. Similarly, art collectors yearn for the opportunity to take in the Venice Biennale. On May 22, 2015, I did just that.

No matter what trips you have planned this year, you have to visit Venice, Italy to see “All The World’s Futures” at the Biennale Arte 2015. This exhibition is by far is the best selection of contemporary art on view anywhere!

The Bugatti of Art

If you are an aficionado of all that is exceptional, then I am sure you are aware of the Bugatti car. If not, it’s one of the world’s fastest, and most expensive Italian cars. People everywhere vie for the chance to slip into the driver’s seat. Similarly, art collectors yearn for the opportunity to take in the Venice Biennale.

On May 22, 2015, I did just that.

The Venice Biennale is a bi-yearly art exhibition that is thought to be the oldest contemporary art exhibition. A world art fair of sorts, it features the work of the world’s best artists for more than six months.

This year, the exhibition was curated by Okwui Enwezor, the first African American to hold this honor.

As a contemporary art collector, there are the yearly art fairs and exhibitions that are “musts” to attend to stay on the pulse. I have visited a few fairs here in the United States. I have also taken in my fair share of exception art, or so I thought.

While it is my hope that you’ll be able to attend the exhibition before it ends in November, here I share some of my favorite pieces.

Know that this is only a small taste of what you can expect.
