Immersive Experiences at Venice Biennale 2024: An Artist’s Perspective (BONUS)

Episode 13

5/28/20244 min read

A must-listen if you are planning a visit to Venice Biennale in 2024!

In this special bonus episode, host Anastasia Parmson takes us through the 60th Venice Art Biennale. Recorded live on location, we get:

• a detailed, candid overview of each day's experiences in Biennale’s Giardini, Arsenale and other locations
• some spicy and maybe even thought-provoking critiques of exhibitions and national pavilions
• a peek at the logistical challenges while navigating Venice and the Biennale
• a sense of the emotional and physical toll of attending such a large-scale art event

Key highlights include an analysis of the host’s favourite pavilions, why she was “in a confused rage” at one of the exhibitions and an ode to site-specific installation. The episode also delves into the less glamorous aspects such as disappointing moments, crowded tourist areas, ticketing and planning fails. It's an honest, enthusiastic, and often funny account that art aficionados and curious listeners alike will find enlightening.
