The Giardini, the formal Biennale is based at a park, houses 30 permanent national pavilions. Countries not owning a pavilion in the Giardini are exhibited in other venues across Venice. We got a chance to travel through the world all the way from Australia to Venezuela. We loved Sarah Sze’s artwork for the United States Pavilion and Russia’s pavilion with a “ladies only-at your own risk” rain of coins.
