With Art Basel Hong Kong winding down, the art crowd is getting ready to set sail for Venice, for the preview days of the 55th Biennale, which has been organized by New York’s Massimiliano Gioni, and the unveiling of scores of national pavilions and exhibitions and events around town. It all takes place next week, with the main show officially opening to the public on Saturday, June 1.

The New York Observer‘s Culture Editor, Sarah Douglas, will be reporting from Venice throughout next week. Have a Venice tip? sdouglas@observer.com.
