Art and Mystery in Venice:

Come and see what the great Belgian antique and art dealer Axel Vervoordt has been up to lately. And you'll find my list of highlights for the Venice Biennale.
Brilliant Axel Vervoordt created the inspiring TRA: Edge of Becoming exhibit at the Palazzo Fortuny, recently renovated.  It's a dazzling and thought-provoking jewel of this year's brilliant Venice Biennale, which continues through November.
