Venice's Biennale art show is one of the world's most famous and most celebrated art events. The exhibition takes place once every two years (in odd years) and cutting-edge, avant-garde art from all genres and from all over the world is put on display for months at a time in the city of canals at the top of the Adriatic Sea. The event began in 1895 and now also includes the Venice Film Festival, the International Festival of Contemporary Dance and the Venice Biennale of Architecture, (which takes place in even years.) The exhibitions take place in various venues throughout Venice including the Giardini and the Arsenale.
