I was thrilled to be one of 20 participants invited to the European Cultural Academy during the 2017 Venice Biennale. This is a three week course that looks at the intricacies of one of the world's oldest and certainly best known art platforms, the Olympics of the art world. The Biennial now in it's 57th rendition features 120 invited artists, 103 of these are participating for the first time, 86 National participants, special projects, and 23 collateral events.
