Once a decade an amazing confluence of major contemporary art exhibitions occurs – the Venice Biennale (every two years), Documenta in Kassel (every five years) and the Münster Sculpture Project (every ten years), both in Germany. Come with me as I retrace my steps to these events, as well as a pilgrimage to Rome and Pompeii.

Part 1 Italy – Rome, Pompeii and Venice

My journey started in Rome, with William Kentridge’s monumental frieze, Triumphs and Laments, along the banks of the Tiber River. A daylong trip fulfilled my lifetime dream of visiting Pompeii. Then to Venice to join a group for the 57th Biennale: Viva Arte Viva in the Giardini and Arsenale, curated by Christine Macel, and as many of the 84 national pavilions and collateral events as possible. The latter included Damien Hirst at his spectacular best.

Marilyn’s journey continues in Part 2 Germany – Kassel and Münster – which will be held separately on 5th September
