In the meanwhile, the Gagosian Gallery opened the exhibition Pittura/Panorama in the same museum of Palazzo Grimani in honour of the artist Helen Frankenthaler.
For the grand finale, the most awaited social event of the Biennale, the “Tiepolo Ball” at Palazzo Labia sponsored by Maison Dior as a tribute to the “Bal Oriental” of 1951’s Bestegui held in the same palace.
There, Ferrari bubbles welcomed more than 200 guests dressed in astonishing customs of that era. The night was simply amazing.
