The Venice Beach Biennial (VBB), a weekend event that makes tongue-in-cheek reference to the “real” Venice Biennale in Italy, treats the famed Venice Beach boardwalk, Ocean Front Walk, as an outdoor exhibition venue.
Over the course of the weekend, nearly 50 fine artists will set up vending stands alongside veteran boardwalk artists, exhibiting new bodies of work, collaborating with the veterans on new projects, displaying site-specific sculptures or installations, and presenting live performances. The Venice Beach Biennial is presented in conjunction with Made in L.A. 2012 and directed by Hammer curator Ali Subotnick.
The Venice Beach Biennial will take place along Ocean Front Walk between 19th Avenue and Rose Avenue. OceanFront Walk is a pedestrian Boardwalk located parallel to the ocean.
The Venice Beach Biennial is made possible by the Teiger Foundation.
