Great talk - really engaging and full of information.
This tour was absolutely engaging. Dr. Bracker is very knowledgeable and I particularly enjoyed her explanation of all of the exhibitions and pieces she highlighted. It is not always apparent to me when I look at modern art what is meant to be conveyed, and her explanations and background, both on the Exhibitions and the artist, were wonderful. It was almost like being there as the photos and videos were so well shot and presented.
Our visit to the Biennale will be greatly enhanced with the background and insight provided by Dr Bracker. Her passion for Venice in general and the Biennale in particular, combined with her expertise and experience in the field, make for a powerful presentation.
This was my first Context Conversation and I was truly impressed. Dr. Bracker is an extremely knowledgeable speaker on the subject of contemporary art not to mention how articulate she is. Given the vastness of the Biannale , Dr. Bracker provided us with her highlights which will serve all well who will be attending the Biannale in person. Interwoven throughout the lecture were personal photographs of the pavilions and associated arts all of which were a very high quality and added greatly to the interest of the presentation.
My wife and I loved Dr. Bracker's Biennale presentation! Although we've been to Italy nearly a dozen times, she made us feel like we were there, navigating Bella Venezia. The only downside is that we still have to wait nearly 5 months until we'll be there to see her highlights in person. The conversation was a perfect blend of scholarship, helpful information, and video and photos of the art, the pavilions and the cityscape. It was a fun, fabulous lesson.
