La copertina con L‘Angelo di Madeira di Giovanni Rizzoli per «la Lettura» #479 di domenica 31 gennaio 2021 e l’articolo a lui dedicato per «Una copertina un artista» intitolato Un poema visivo.
In a city where a glorious past has generated a majestic art full of history, the function of contemporary art becomes fundamental to move forward, even through the unusual, towards new artistic languages and new knowledge.
This is the goal of Venice Galleries View, which connects nine contemporary art galleries in Venice and promotes the new and the unexpected, and exhibits an art that suggests future tendencies.
Venice Galleries View brings together many and various elements: exhibition spaces in highly suggestive environments (both in the heart of Venice and in the mainland), gallery owners always looking for the spark of genius and ready to offer it to anyone willing to hear its voice, editors of art books, and promoters of new debates and research.
To prepare for the Boca Raton Museum of Art’s upcoming exhibition Glasstress, Kathleen Goncharov, the museum’s senior curator only had a narrow window of opportunity over the past couple of years to visit the Berengo Studio in Venice, which has helped organise the exhibition. First the Italian lagoon suffered from record-breaking floods, swiftly followed by the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, but during an opportune moment in 2019 she made it to the island of Murano to choose handblown glass sculptures designed by 34 contemporary artists, including Ai Weiwei, Fred Wilson, Vik Muniz, Erwin Wurm, Fionna Banner, Prune Nourry, Ugo Rondinone, and Joyce J. Scott.
