Inside the Corderie: HY William Chan

Venice correspondent HY William Chan gained night access to the ceiling lofts of the 900-year-old heritage Corderie at the Arsenale in Venice to bring us this slideshow of selected exhibits before the 2012 Vernissage opens.

HY William Chan is in Venice as part of the Byera Hadley Travelling Scholarship. He was involved with the installation of Anupama Kundoo’s Wall House One to One international exhibition. Read his account of the project here.
