ADRIAN GHENIE |The Battle between Carnival and Feast

Open until 18 November 2019.

Absolute first solo show in Italy for this established Romanian artist, on this occasion presenting a cycle of nine canvases of great impact, some unpublished and inspired by Venetian history, in an unprecedented dialogue with the historical areas of this museum-home which belonged to Vittorio Cini.

These artworks, painted in a marine palette of dark aqua-greens, intense blues and iridescent greys, are linked by the recurring theme of water and by some scorching, controversial, internationally topical themes.

The exhibition, organised in collaboration with the Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, is by curator Luca Massimo Barbero.
