Inside the Venice Biennale

AT&T New Media Fellow Ariel Hudes '11 is working to make the Venice Biennale accessible to students around the world. In addition to blogging on the Global Conversation, she has launched Biennale Insider, a site created by young artists for young artists, and in her words, "designed to answer the questions that young people want answered" about the Venice Biennale. The Venice Biennale is considered the biggest event of the art world, and it brings together artists, curators, art collectors and art enthusiasts from around the world to experience the cutting edge of contemporary art and to engage in global conversations around it.
