Venice Biennale 2017: The 7 spectacles you don't want to miss
This article was originally published by The Spaces, a digital publication exploring new ways to live and work.
Ahead of the launch of the 57th Venice Biennale, when the city will erupt with exhibitions and installations, we asked global arts club The Cultivist for its guide to the unmissable shows.
Scant information is divulged ahead of the preview, so The Cultivist has tapped its extensive art world contacts to make its predictions. These span the main Arsenale and Giardini venues, as well as spaces across the city.
The Cultivist has focused on the Venice Biennale installations that bring the city's rich architecture to life. These shows -- taking over everything from pavilions, palazzos and churches to public squares and former factories -- dynamically alter their surroundings, while making potent statements about today's world and what it means to be an artist.
