About The Event
Embark on an enriching and exciting cultural exploration with a focus on art and women in Venice! Immerse yourself in both the magnificence of the Renaissance—from the paintings of Titian and Veronese to stunning architecture of the Doge's Palace and the spectacular palazzi and bridges—and astonishing Contemporary Art at the Venice Biennale. This year, for the first time since its inception in 1895, the Biennale spotlights women artists! A unique and unrepeatable adventure, we will discover today's leading women artists at the Biennale, while simultaneously enjoying Venice's cultural riches and historic grandeur! "The Milk of Dreams," the theme of the 2022 biennale, stems from a book by the Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington. In her book, Carrington describes a magical world where life is constantly re-envisioned through the prism of the imagination. It is a world where everyone can change, be transformed, become something or someone else. The Milk of Dreams theme takes Leonora Carrington’s otherworldly creatures, along with other figures of transformation, as companions on an imaginary journey through the metamorphoses of bodies and definitions of the human. We will discuss these ideas as we admire the magnificent art exhibitions during the peaceful and balmy month of October.
We will learn from local experts about the city's rich history, particularly the women of Venice's past, as we admire the wealth of art in the Accademia, Guggenheim, and in numerous churches and historical sites. We will wander through the wonderland of canals and take in the many architectural jewels around the city, studded with special, contemporary art installations for the Biennale. In addition to Venice, we will also visit the neighboring city of Padua to see the spectacular 15th century frescoes by Giotto, recently added to the UNESCO Heritage list. Groups will be limited in size to 6 people. Two trips will run—one fast paced and the other leisurely—so you can choose your own pace (the itinerary is the same for both trips).
This deluxe voyage is curated for an intimate group of women who wish to travel tastefully, while deepening their connection to art, culture and each other.
