Betty Does Venice

The 55th la Biennale di Venezia – the world-renowned international art exhibition – opened in style at the weekend, with over 150 pieces of art from 37 countries. Over the next few months, over 370,000 visitors will be travelling to Venice to critique the work on display, but perhaps none more expressive that Betty Biennale, an omnipotent art presence, who has been giving her undiluted opinion on the artworks during press week.

Betty Biennale originates from Arts University Bournemouth (AUB) – she is the result of collaboration between Welsh artist Pete Fowler and the AUB Marketing Team. She was created to make the Venice Biennale accessible to an audience in the UK – made up of creatives from AUB, Arts Pavilion Bournemouth (a partnership between AUB, Arts Bournemouth and work in progress for Venice Agendas) and those in the creative industry who are interested in her sharp tongue and candid opinion.
