Viva Arte Viva at Venice Biennale, an unbelievable visit

Viva Arte Viva, the theme for Venice Biennale 2017, and the reason for my first trip to Venice. The lagoon city, a maze of waterways and narrow cobbled paths is enchanting, to say the least—but this visit was extra special, coinciding with an art tour curated by Dallas Contemporary.

The water taxi docked at Palazzo Venart just after midnight, and beneath the moonlight, the Grand Canal and garden entrance to the hotel looked hauntingly spectacular. The once Venetian palace, Palazzo Bacchini della Palme, recently renovated into a five-star hotel would be home for the next five nights. I arrived in Venice ready for a Monday morning kick-off, along with an art posse from Dallas for pre-opening activities of the Biennale.

My MTV Re:Define Thank you

As I scroll through multiple photos of smiling and laughing faces, it’s evident that the common theme shared by everyone at MTV Re:Define on Friday, March 24 was simple—fun! And I’ll admit I’m completely biased as the event chair, so you don’t need to believe my opinion on how much fun everyone had that night, just ask someone else. Hands-down, this is my favourite gala on the social calendar of Dallas, and this particular night rocked—as it should do when it’s a collaboration with MTV!
