Summary For more than a century, the Venice Biennale has been one of the world's largest and most prestigious arts events. Artscape enters the society of glamorous international art, celebrity parties and competitive national exhibitions. This is an investigation into the Biennale's significance in the context of the international art world and Australia's part in that.3 Days in Venice focuses on the preview or 'vernissage' when 30,000 arts insiders - artists, dealers, collectors - not to mention the rich and famous - flock to more than 89 national exhibitions throughout the city.In particular, this documentary follows the progress of Australia's 2011 official representative, Hany Armanious. Armanious is preceded by the likes of Sidney Nolan and Albert Tucker, Howard Arkley, Bill Henson and more recently Shaun Gladwell whose careers have all been given a boost as a result of international exposure and recognition received at the Venice Biennale.Controversially, this year the real action is rumoured to be around billionaire, Francois Pinault, who, almost in competition to the official program, will be exhibiting an adventurous collection at the elegant Palazzo Grassi and the Punta della Dogana. Among others 3 Days In Venice features British arts journalist Ben Lewis, director of The Great Contemporary Art Bubble - a blistering piece of investigative journalism about the art world, and Australian actress and art enthusiast Rachel Griffiths.The Venice Biennale is one of the world's largest and most prestigious arts events. This is a focus on glamorous international art, celebrity parties, competitive national exhibitions and behind-the-scenes nerves.PRODUCTION DETAILS3 Days In Venice: Biennale 2011 is produced by ABC TV.
