Galleria Alberta Pane
the Venetian venue of Alberta Pane Gallery is presenting the group show I Wish It Was Mine. The exhibition brings together works by eight international artists: Claire Fontaine, Gelitin, Miná Minov, Ivan Moudov, Alban Muja, Anri Sala, Selma Selman and Ulay. Ivan Moudov’s site-specific work, The One Minute Stalker in the entrance corridor, sets the tone for the exhibition, carrying at its core the notion of desire in Tarkovsky’s 1979 film.

Beatrice Burati Anderson Art Space & Gallery
8 January - 26 March 2022
Water, the element that inspired the title of the exhibition Winter Seas, invades the space and becomes an absolute protagonist of the works exhibited in the new Venetian space of Beatrice Burati Anderson, which hosts the bi-personal exhibition by Ilaria Abbiento and Mauro Pipani in a compositional symbiosis that includes painting, photography and video installation.
In the works of the artists Ilaria Abbiento and Mauro Pipani the flow of time and memory emerges from interior landscapes, photographs of moods and paintings that become mirrors of a life, in a continuous dialogue between the lagoon and the sea, through the calm language that characterizes the research of both artists, in the name of transparency and feeling.
Objects and drawings are often thought of as two separate entities. My work explores and interweaves the creative possibilities of this liminal space, where the form is not just a support for drawing; but a three-dimensional drawing itself. Using the unique qualities of the material, and the rich potential of mark making on and with glass, I am using line as a way to inform, define and enable three-dimensional space.

La Galleria Dorothea Van der Koelen
In the change of time
24 April - 27 November 2022
The exhibition presents works of 8 international artists from 6 different countries - 8 different views to a world that is in an extreme change. In these special times - full of horrible experiences like the Covid pandemic on one hand side and the war in Ucrainia on the other hand side - we need to put our eyes to the visual arts and their inventions. We need hope to survive and we need artistic creativity to find solutions, where the politic is out of words. This exhibition is a statement that not the dialogue of weapons, but only the dialogue of culture can help us to build bridges into the future.
Marko Velk | Crossing the Rubicon
05 March – 27 April 2023
The Crossing the Rubicon exhibition curated by Živa Kraus is named after the drawing of the same name by Marko Velk.
The illustration realistically reproduces the painting Washington crossing the Delaware painted by Emanuel Leutze to honour the feat of crossing the Delaware River during the American War of Independence on Christmas Day 1776.
George Washington is compared to Julius Caesar in the exploits of the crossing of the Rubicon, when the emperor uttered the famous words 'Alea Iacta Est', the die is cast.
L'Insieme Vuoto - Maurizio Donzelli
09 April 2022 - 23 July 2022
Marignana Arte presents a new project in the gallery's main space, bringing together the works of four represented artists (fuse*, Yojiro Imasaka, Silvia Infranco, Giulio Malinverni), addressing the theme of metamorphosis.
The term metamorphosis literally means everything that goes beyond its own form. This concept takes on different meanings depending on the context in which it is used. It is certainly more specific when applied in the scientific field, where it concerns precise changes in organic structures due to the evolutionary processes that determine them. However, the category of metamorphosis is often used in contexts unrelated to the laws of biology or botany: in art, literature, but also in common speech, it indicates, for example, the profound transformation that a human being or an entire culture may experience.
marina bastianello gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibition of French artist Orianne Castel Derniers tableaux, curated by Marina Bastianello (27 March to 29 April 2023, inauguration Saturday 25 March 2023 from 6.30 pm to 8.30 pm). The exhibition consists of around twenty works realised between the end of 2022 and the beginning of 2023. Orianne Castel, 30 years old and born in 1989, belongs to generation of artists whose practice has been nourished above all by the contributions of modernity, but for whom the for whom the challenge of breaking away from this is no longer a necessity. Like many of his contemporaries the artist now turns his gaze to older works, and it is precisely this inscription in a dual
tradition that is reflected in his works.

MARINA BASTIANELLO GALLERY
Galleria Michela Rizzo
14 March - 10 May 2023
After the public and critical success of the great anthological exhibition organised by the Municipality of Padua last October at the Eremitani Civic Museums, the work of Saverio Rampin returns to the Galleria Michela Rizzo with an exhibition itinerary that presents the work of the Venetian artist from the mid-1950s to 1990 in emblematic form. In this concise yet timely analysis of Rampin's work, the exhibition explores the artist's oeuvre, starting with paintings that adhere to the Spatialist period and continuing through to his research in the 1960s and 1970s. Within his research, Saverio Rampin, now free from the expressionism of chromaticism and always poised between the material and its dissolution, applies a turning point aimed at revealing that emotion in art is something that can also be detached from the compositional rules and stylistic supports imposed by formal tradition.
Alex Hartley: Closer Than Before
22 April–17 June 2023
Alex Hartley’s work often possesses the quality of a time machine that frees the mind to wander. In his work it is as if we
are teleported into the future in order to look back at the present or very recent past. In Closer Than Before this layering of
time extends from the works on view to the peeling away of the fabric of the gallery, lent an ecological imperative by an
unseen event that asks us to consider what might have occurred and what might be to come. Encounters with architecture are grounded by conventions and expectations but Alex Hartley shows us new ways of experiencing and thinking about our constructed surroundings. For the artist a sense of unfolding narrative is key and in
this exhibition, where he alludes to the effects of an extreme tidal event, the site of the gallery is turned into a portal to
another world or time. On entering the main space, the viewer notices a tideline around the walls.
