Last time we were in Venice the great (and currently controversial outgoing director of the Tate) Sir Nicholas Serota was hosting a super exclusive cocktail party inside the mind-blowing Biblioteca Marciana.
With map and invite in hand we were hot in pursuit to be at this life-changing event – just to arrive at yet another dead-end canal. So all we ever saw were the photos on Scene & Herd the next week.
We can't count the number of wrong turns we had made just when we needed to be somewhere in Venice.
You'll never get lost again! Everything you need to know about the Venice Biennale – VIVA ARTE VIVA, all the pavilions, collateral events and even more – is now available on our Exhibitionary app!

We embarked on a mission to find the top 10 shows in the floating city – finding them is just one click away.
