For those weary of the "global disorder" of contemporary politics, the 57th Venice Biennale of contemporary art promises to lift the spirits of those frazzled by everything from Brexit to global warming. Opening Saturday, "Viva Arte Viva" is, according to curator Christine Macel, "a passionate outcry for art" in a world "full of conflicts and shocks". Among those exhibiting are pioneering U.S. fiber artist Sheila Hicks, West German-born American Kiki Smith and Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson, the man behind the vast sun that illuminated London's Tate Modern in 2003 and brought waterfalls to New York in 2008 .Visitors should take to the gondolas for the best view of the glinting "Golden Tour," 1990, by U.S. artist James Lee Byars, which stands proudly on the canal front next to the Peggy Guggenheim museum."Viva Arte Viva" – the exhibition of the 57th Venice Biennale of contemporary art – runs through Nov. 26 .
