SURREALISMO E MAGIA. LA MODERNITÀ INCANTATA
Peggy Guggenheim Collection
- Surrealismo e magia. La modernità incantata
Surrealism is the artistic movement that drew inspiration from the occult, magic and mythology. The aim of many of the great artists of Surrealism was to explore the irrational and the unconscious using ancient knowledge, recovering esoteric symbolism and interpreting the role of the artist as an alchemist capable of seeing worlds unknown to most people.
Among the numerous artists present in the exhibition with their works are: Victor Brauner, Leonora Carrington, Salvador Dalí, Paul Delvaux, Maya Deren, Max Ernst, Leonor Fini, René Magritte, Roberto Matta, Wolfgang Paalen, Kay Sage, Kurt Seligmann, Yves Tanguy, Dorothea Tanning and Remedios Varo.
When: 9 April – 26 September 2022
Where: Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice
To visit the exhibition, I recommend you book your entrance in advance. Check the calendar for availability.
Giardini della Biennale, Arsenale di Venezia e altre sedi
- Biennale Arte di Venezia. The Milk of Dreams
Curated by Cecilia Alemani.
The 59. International Art Exhibition is entitled ‘The Milk of Dreams’.
The exhibition takes its name from a book by Leonora Carrington in which the surrealist artist describes a magical world in which life follows the rules of the imagination and in which change and transformation are permitted.
The Art Biennale returns after the forced stop caused by the Covid in 2020 and proposes an imaginary journey through the metamorphosis of bodies and definitions of the human.
IL GARD CINETICO. SONO SOLO 4 X 20
Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa
- Il Gard cinetico. Sono solo 4 x 20.
The City of Venice and the Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa Institution celebrate Ferruccio Gard’s 80th birthday with an anthological exhibition in the prestigious venue of Piazza San Marco.
Gard, one of the protagonists of the optical-constructivist line of Italian painting (first exhibition of kinetic art in 1969), is still in full activity and indeed, referring to the great Ennio Flaiano, feels like a young man who has turned twenty four times.
The definition of “The kinetic Gard” is by Gillo Dorfles, whose presentation is published in the catalogue, alongside the text “The kinetic of colour” by the poet and writer Paolo Ruffilli. At the Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa, chaired by Bruno Bernardi and directed by Michele Casarin, Gard’s entire artistic career will be reconstructed, from the first kinetic works of the 1970s, to the momentary interludes dedicated to informal and geometric abstractionism in the 1990s, to the intensification of his renewed research in optical since 2000.
When: 26 February – 10 April 2022
Where: Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa, Venice
