Hey LODLAM delegates, you might like to take a look at the Venice Biennale 2017 before or after the Summit!
There are 86 nations participating with exhibitions in the historic pavilions in the Giardini at the Arsenale – and – in the historic city centre of Venice.
Here, dear delegates, following, you can find the links to websites published by many of your own countries, showing artworks in the Biennale exhibitions. Moreover on May 5th the Financial Times published a “what to see at the Venice Biennale 2017”. Among the exhibitions recommended that are part of the Venice Biennale, the FT suggests checking out the Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol at the Giorgio Cini Foundation! Right on the doorstep of where we will all be gathering to talk about linked open data, cultural heritage, and digital humanities.
The international pavilions:
- Finland and Nordic Pavilion
- New Zealand
- United Kingdom
- Unites States
We suggest also having a quick scan of The Guardian review on Venice Biennale 2017

On display, until November 26th, outside the Ca’Sagredo Hotel in Venice, Italian artist Lorenzo Quinn‘s wonderful “Support” sculpture featuring two large hands emerging from the Grand Canal for the Venice art biennale 2017. The massive sculpture aims to make a statement on the effects of global warming.
Plenty of great art to take in, while you’re at the international 2017 LODLAM Summit in Venice!
