57th Venice Biennale, Part 2: National Pavilions in the Giardini

The exterior of the Korea Pavilion in the Giardini, with CODY CHOI’s neon signage piece Venetian Rhapsody (2017) on the roof. All photos by HG Masters for ArtAsiaPacific.

At least half of the fun during the Venice Biennale can be found at the national pavilions: Who did what this year? Was it interesting—even spectacular? How was the Biennale compared to the last one and the one before that? And for how much is Hauser & Wirth selling Mark Bradford’s paintings in the United States Pavilion? (We heard USD 5 million a piece, but that could be lagoon lore.)
