grandtour 2007

The 52nd International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale (www.labiennale.org),

Art 38 Basel (www.artbasel.com)

documenta 12 (www.documenta.de) and

skulptur projekte münster 07 (www.skulptur-projekte.de)

will be organizing their openings in a sequence, from the 10th to the 17th June 2007
, given a temporal coincidence happening once in a decade.

Starting from 2006, based on a suggestion by the
Venice Biennale Art and Architecture Department, the four institutions have engaged for the first time in a joint planning effort which has been developing for several months over several fields. Among the results of this joint work, the most visible for the public will be the invitation to visit all these European events together.

To foster this initiative, these institutions will promote a shared home page entitled www.grandtour2007.com and also containing links to web portals for searching and booking flights, hotel rooms, transfers and anything which may help individuals organize a trip to the great contemporary art exhibitions.
