Cornici temporali. Vincenzo Eulisse e l’universo dell’arte
Written by Carlotta Scarpa   
giovedì, 07 aprile 2011
eulisse.jpgCa’ Pesaro, Galleria Internazionale d’Arte Moderna, rende omaggio alla recente produzione artistica di Vincenzo Eulisse, poliedrico artista veneziano nato nel 1936. Esordisce alla Bevilacqua La Masa negli anni ’60 e da allora espone in tutta Italia con le tappe alla Biennale del ’72 e del ’76, ricoprendo poi il ruolo di docente prima alla Sommer Kunstakademie di Salisburgo, poi all’Accademia di Belle Arti di Urbino. La forte adesione al neorealismo dall’afflato socio-esistenziale degli esordi, lascia il passo a una ricerca dinamica surreale nei tempi a venire.
 
Stati Generali. Diciotto artisti in un’indagine per immagini sul concetto di nazione
Written by Maria Rita Cerilli   
giovedì, 07 aprile 2011
whereismyplace.jpgWhere is my place? Dov’è la mia casa? Qual è la mia patria e il luogo dove mi riconosco? Questi sono gli interrogativi che sembrano porsi i diciotto artisti, provenienti da tutto il mondo, con le proprie opere, esposte fino al 1° maggio nella sede di Piazza San Marco della Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa. La mostra, curata da Filippo Maggia chief curator delle collezioni fotografiche della Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Modena, con cui l'esposizione è organizzata, vuole mettere a confronto una serie di questioni strettamente legate al concetto di identità nazionale, facendo emergere le evidenti contraddizioni e le possibili prospettive.
 
Romanticamente astratto. Omaggio a Emilio Vedova e al suo “vedere attraverso”
Written by Roberta De Villa   
giovedì, 07 aprile 2011
vedova.jpgChe colore hanno i pensieri? Quali sono le tinte, le sfumature, i toni che l’animo predilige? Emilio Vedova esprime con pennellate materiche, impetuose e pensate, i moti intimi del suo “vedere attraverso”. Le sue opere sono uno sguardo passionale e appassionato nella vita e sottopelle, al centro del sentito. Il Magazzino del Sale, alle Zattere, propone un’attenta rivisitazione delle sue tele, lavori risalenti agli anni ’60 e ’80, un excursus che comprende opere del Ciclo ’61, del Ciclo ’62, degli Scarabocchi dell’anima e Di umano ’84-IV. La mostra è un omaggio che la Fondazione Emilio e Annabianca Vedova consegna agli estimatori di una pittura dal forte impatto emotivo e visivo.
 
Praise be to doubt!
Written by Chiara Casarin   
giovedì, 07 aprile 2011

lodedubbio1.jpgTheir common denominator is art. Their distinguishing factor is belonging to Venice’s most famous European collection. If the Biennial, which upholds the Lagoon City as the capital of contemporary art, is in a full vortex of preparations, at the Pinault Foundation, too, people are working round the clock. There are two challenges or, at least, cultural obligations which the French art patron is announcing this year to the international exposition, already more than a century old: at Palazzo Grassi, on the 2nd of June, Il mondo vi appartiene, with the presence of forty artists coming from twenty different countries. These have been summoned to give their interpretation of the world; at Punta della Dogana, on the 8th of April, will begin the eagerly-awaited Elogio del Dubbio.

 

Let us not forget that Tristan Tzara and Bertolt Brecht were the first to create their elogies to doubt, already decades ago, as a motor of invention, free action device and place for artistic fertility, against all schematism. This exposition is proceding with more intimacy; it is a glance turned inward, toward that emotive state in which artists move between their work and the stimuli that they perceive in the strength and in the fragility of the human soul.

 
Soul doodling. The uninterrupted artistic sentiments of Vedova
Written by Livia Sartori di Borgoricco   
mercoledì, 23 marzo 2011

vedova.jpgThere is always extra pleasure when one is able to enjoy the works of an artist in the same
context where he was born. When to this is added the opportunity of an extraordinary visit, in which the dynamics are inverted and the works themselves go forth to encounter the visitors, then the occasion becomes truly a must.

 

Here we are in Venice, along the Zattere which lead to Punta della Salute: these are places which have witnessed the life of one of the great masters of the twentieth century, Emilio Vedova. In this part of the city, the artist had all of his large studios. Here, inside the Magazzino del Sale, is located the Emilio and Annabianca Vedova Foundation, which until next April will host Emilio Vedova 1961 & 1984.

 
In the wolf’s den. Sonia Ros between old myths and fables
Written by Sara Bossi   
mercoledì, 23 marzo 2011

soniaros2.jpgA black wolf, his mouth dilated into a giant funnel, devours a kind of Barbie-Red Riding Hood. Five large canvases, an average of two metres long; five hybrid creatures, suspended between old myths, fables and Bosch’s Flemish bestiary.

 

This exposition by Sonia Ros at the Galleria d’Arte Moderna, Ca’ Pesaro, is a concentrate of never-before displayed paintings with evocative names: Lupus in fabula!, from which the exposition takes its name, Il pennello di Nike, La dea Bendata, Sirena in acqua alta, Icaro.

 
Giò’s version. Woman as subject, as conceived by two artists
Written by Marisa Chelodi   
lunedì, 21 marzo 2011

ceramicajoponti1.jpgGiorgione/Giò Ponti. What else can bring together these two artists, beyond first three letters of their names? They are as far apart in time as they are in space, in artistic profession, the first was a painter, the second a designer/ architect, and yet their subjects are so similar. Their women, for example.

 

Their preference for woman as a subject is expressed with fascinating, evocative elegance in the two works now on display at the Galleria Franchetti, Ca’ d’Oro. The Maddalena by Giorgione is the woman redeemed by the humanity of Jesus. She is shown in deep contemplation of the unguent container which is the sublime symbol of her devotion.

 
The hope of Venice, At the Correr Museum an homage to the 150th anniversary of the Unification of Italy
Written by Anna Trevisan   
martedì, 15 marzo 2011

veneziachespera.jpgThe spirit of the Risorgimento which is still felt in Italy today is being abused by squabbling politicians and rude boutades, who seek to deny a sentiment and an idea which were able to guide, with tireless determination, the disconnected pieces of a territory, finally achieving unification, the creation of one sole nation.

 

An exposition at the Correr Museum is trying, to relive the stages of the history of Italy’s unification, revealing this by the pictorial reportage of its artists, by the photos and by the cartography of that era. From the Second War of Independence, in 1859, with Garibaldi and the Cacciatori delle Alpi on the border with Austria, to 17 March 1861, day of the proclamation of the Kingdom of Italy, and finally until 1866, when Venice and Veneto were annexed.

 
Springtime at the Fortuny. Ventura, Penso and Di Camerino
Written by Sara Bossi   
giovedì, 10 marzo 2011

lautomafortuny.jpgThis palace evokes the effervescent, incredibly creative spirit of those who lived there at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. In the atmosphere of this place one can still sense the eclectic work, the thirst for experimentation and innovation.

 

This is the atmosphere of Palazzo Fortuny, shaped by the personality Mariano Fortuny, who dwelled among the protagonists of the intellectual and artistic panorama of his times. This area will be occupied by two contemporary artists, able to bring forth new paths.

 

Paolo Ventura enables us to envision daily events and personages of the Ghetto of Venice during the Second World War. Michelangelo Penso continues his research of the scientific universe as the source of inspiration for his own work.
