Travelling Light is a collaborative project between WW Gallery and Pharos Gallery. The exhibition will open in London from the 15th – 28th May at WW Gallery. From there the work will  travel long the trade route to Venice, a path historically trodden by merchants and hedonists attracted to the trade and pleasure capital of Europe. From 6th-11th June it will be hung within the orbit of the Venice Biennale in a palazzo between the Accademia Galleries and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection.

The exhibition will promote artists represented from both galleries, along with a selection of international works including submissions from Brazil, Hong Kong, Australia, USA, Italy, Spain and Luxemberg (appropriate as the theme of this year’s Venice Biennale is “Making Worlds”).

As well as their website, updates about the exhibition can be followed on their blog. All looks very exciting!
