Earlier this month, I attended the opening week of the Venice Biennale, themed "All the World's Futures". This year's biennale was curated by Okwi Enwezor, a fellow Nigerian, and the first African born Curator to curate the biennale in its 120 year history.
I’m very sensitive to my environment and reminded just how high maintenance I am whenever I travel! My partner was shocked that I had 2 heavy suitcases for just a week away, but what do these men really know anyway?
The weather was beautiful, the famous Venetian spritzes were fresh and went down oh-too-easily, the parties were crazy and the art, very inspiring. Okwi did a great job and I was so proud to be there to witness history being made. The biennale is on for at least 6 months, if not more. If you have the chance to be in Venice, you must visit it.
