During the time of the fine arts biennale Venice turns into a genuine store of art pieces. All over the town exhibitions welcome visitors, and many visitors take advantage of this period to join the flow of the biennale. In a certain part of the slip of land bordering Grand Canale one of the exterior exhibition rooms of the Venetian Arts Academy is housed in one of the former salt halls of the Zattere. Peter Halley, American artist has now been given the chance to create an installation and an exhibition at the joint invitation of the Academy and Flash Art magazine. The curator of the project is Gea Politi, chief editor of the Flash Art magazine.
