A friend told me not to miss the Mona Hatoum exhibition at the Querini Stampalia. It was indeed worth seeing. The museum continues to invite artists to work with their own collection (in past years, I saw Kiki Smith and Maria Morganti's shows in this series). But when I wandered into one of my favorite rooms of the museum, I stopped to draw Gabriel Bella's 18th century scenes of Venetian festivals. In retropect, my point of view could have been more dramatic, but it was fun to do. I may do more with this.
