Ca’ Pesaro, Venice
This year, Emilio Vedova will be speaking to the whole of Venice, his works will be “living” in some of the most prestigious cultural venues of the city.
These venues include three “cult” museums – the Museo Correr, Ca’ Rezzonico – Museum of the 18th century Venice and Ca’ Pesaro, International Gallery of Modern Art – whose permanent collections will “open up” to an extraordinary “meeting-cum-confrontation” with the work of the great Venetian painter through a common denominator called “Vedova Plurimo”.
This is the title of the project promoted with the collaboration of the Fondazione Emilio e Annabianca Vedova and curated by Germano Celant, and its aim is to encourage visitors to take a fresh look at Vedova’s masterly works in the light of Venice’s art history which has inevitably permeated his own extraordinary personality as an artist.
On the second floor of Ca’ Rezzonico, two Frammenti (one of which dedicated to Tiepolo), will go on display opposite the extraordinary detached frescos from Villa di Zianigo by Giandomenico Tiepolo himself, together with a Frammento/Scheggia, in an intense “dialogue” with the great 18th-century painter, author of the “Mondo Novo”.
In collaboration with Fondazione Emilio e Annabianca Vedova
