Hello everyone,
If you are in Venice at the weekend pop into the book launch for Empire II - an immersive artist led film hub project devised by Vanya Balogh for the 57th Venice Biennale. 

The book launch is this Saturday May 27th, at Castello 1610/A, Riva Dei Sette Martiri from 6-8pm BST.
Age of Anxiety is a 260 page full colour bespoke publication, designed, produced and printed by Victor Hotz Studio in Switzerland - www.studiovictorhotz.com
 
The book features selected work by 115 participating artists - observations on Anxiety and Empire.
There will be an event panel talk at 7pm, to explore and discuss the influence of capital, social media and technology on the Venice Biennale and contemporary art. Attending guest speakers are Negin Vaziri, Mark Woods, Andrea Morucchio and Vanya Balogh.
Entry is free and drinks and refreshments will be served. More info at www.empire2.infowww.empire2.info
Here's a pic of Sooz Belnavis and me at the opening in May, taken by Ashley Scott Fitzgerald:
