The yearly show opens to the public on Friday, March 17 and it is a sight for the eyes and ears.  With a heavy dose of video and audio the biennial really moves into the present time.  There are short movies, that take you to beautiful lush islands, a 3D movie about the senses a hyper-violent immersive experience in Virtual Reality, video using iPhones, numerous films and more.  There are paintings using standard media and thoughtful pieces using sunlight through the windows.  There is a large installation of a manuscript asking for censorship.  There are pieces that address relevant social issues.  

This is an entertaining and thought provoking opening and a great way to spend a morning or afternoon.  Enjoy!
