It's the 2017 Venice Biennale.
Sure, there are some great works of art locked up in the echelons of the event's famed Pavillions, but after a while taking selfies and giving the finger Ai Weiwei style to Damien Hirst's Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelieve(ably shit), tradition and custom gets super boring.
Some of the most intriguing and accessible artwork is being produced by Venice's student population. We certainly aren't ones for convention, so we decided to dig deeper to see what all the (well deserved) fuss was about.
During our stay, we talked to the super-talented Minsk-based illustrator and creative polymath, Daria, about her work, her comments about the online world, girl power, and how art is intrinsically linked to activism. Daria's powerful work covers a wide breadth of sensitive material; from global warming to the refugee crisis; she quietly works to raise awareness about and fight these troubling issues.
