Arsenale - Always a Little Further - In the same room as the Vasconcelos hang the povocative posters by the New York based Guerrilla Girls, a bunch of anonymous females who take the names of dead women artists as pseudonyms and appear in public wearing gorilla masks! They use humor to convey information, provoke discussion, and show that feminists can be funny. The mystery surrounding their identities has attracted attention - they could be anyone and be anywhere!

My favorite installation was Louise Bourgeois's sound installation - ***** The Murmuring of the Singing Water 2001 - her feeble nonagenarian voice recites nursery rhymes and other children songs like " Sur le Pont d'Avignon" with such simplicity and joie de vivre - it's so charming and mesmerizing, I couldn't come get away!
