Art at the beach: The other Venice Biennale

Get out your SPF and bikini and get ready to stroll Ocean Front Walk in Venice this weekend for the other Venice Bienniale. Not content to have launched the Los Angeles version of the fabled art Biennials that occur in other cities, now the Hammer is extending “Made in LA 2012” beyond the museum and gallery walls and out to the sand. Well, close to the sand. For once, the art might trump the people-watching in Venice. Art critic Hunter Drohojowska-Philp talked about it with me. Read her text, hear her talk and see some images here, and check out this video preview from the Hammer.
