Art during the architecture Biennial

Michelangelo Pistoletto at the Palazzo Grassi

Magritte at the Peggy Guggenheim

Piotr Uklanski at Palazzo Grassi

During the architecture Biennial in Venice I saw 2 art shows. One was the "Where Are We Going?": Selections from the Fran├žois Pinault Collection at the newly rennovated but uptight Palazzo Grassi. The show was good as expected with no surprises. Another show was the Lucio Fontana at the Peggy Guggenheim. I did not like these Fontana pieces which were made and inspired after one of his visits in New York. I moved to the permanent collection building to enjoy the Max Ernst, Magritte and Yves Tanguy paintings once again.

I've recently added Max Ernst, Rene Magritte, and Yves Tanguy sections at http://www.surrealism-artlinks.com/ under the "famous surreal artists" section.

It's basically a google/wikipedia listing without the crap "adwords" websites and other copies of websites that say the same stuff. All the links have a good description so you know what's on the page you're going to click on.
