Galleria Alberta Pane
Alberta Pane Gallery is pleased to present Island Ark by Marcos Lutyens, the first solo show ever held in the frame of its Venetian space. Island Ark is a project that seeks to remediate the loss of habitability due to sea level rise - happening to entire island nations across the world. The exhibition includes video, ceramic works, drawings, an audio induction, inductive portals and a maquette that could be used as a kit to help island nations decide which activities (i.e. practices of consciousness, reconnection to the senses, creative social interactions, stewardship of the environment) to include in their own platform.

Beatrice Burati Anderson Art Space & Gallery
15 May - 13 August 2023
The exhibition presents two site-specific installations by Emilio Fantin and Marzio Zorio. Sounds, lights, voices, drawings and some very essential objects, redesign the gallery’s spaces in both a fascinating and quite radical way. Through the narrative’s flow of a performance realized by five people, almost day-dreamers, it’s possible to tap into some normally undetectable areas of perception. On the other side, the dialogue between sound resonances and light reverberations, potentially allows all languages to be understood. The artists explore subtle and imperceptible territories, drawing a kind of intimacy’s landscape in the space of relationship (Fantin), or focusing on the sense of disorientation and distance, as they become ways to find a condition of balance (Zorio). An unexpected space of freedom is here unveiled, right in that silent, often unreachable condition belonging to both individual and collective consciousness. (C.S.)
On the occasion of the seventh edition of The Venice Glass Week, Caterina Tognon arte contemporanea presents the publication "Autoritratti. Lilla Tabasso and Xavier F. Salomon: Homage to Rosalba Carriera". The volume presents a work by Lilla Tabasso (Milan, 1973) inspired by the last, superb self-portrait of the famous painter Rosalba Carriera (Venice, 1673 - 1757), which is housed at the Gallerie dell'Accademia. The glass work, accompanied in the publication by a text by Xavier F. Salomon, is composed of different botanical elements such as the laurel - which, in the painting, encircles Carriera's head -, the variety of rose known as Alba - hence, the name Rosalba - and the lilac - Tabasso's favourite flower.

Metamorphosis. Paths beyond the form
11 March - 16 September 2023
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.
A symbolic place of protection in nature, the nest represents a broader concept that evokes affection, intimacy, care, dedication and vital genesis. The care and dedication that birds typically use in building their nests is the same that can be indirectly read in the work of Marina and Susanna Sent, two Murano designers who, starting from the jewel, the strong point and historical starting point of their brand, have reached more recent sculptural objects. The liveliness and fantasy of colors drawn from the Murano tradition characterize the Sent style but coexist happily with a clear propensity towards minimalism, a research into the very essence of glassmaking.

15 July - 28 September 2023

5 September - 21 October 2023
Defined by its clarity, honesty and empathy, Chantal Joffe’s art is attuned to our awareness as both observers and observed beings, and is questioning, complex and emotionally rich. Over the summer, the artist has worked in the gallery’s studio in Venice, completing paintings – self-portraits; paintings of her daughter, Esme; still lifes – against the backdrop of the city at its high-season peak, a place of magnificence, stimulation, pleasure, excess and decay, endlessly toppling into one another.
The exhibition is accompanied by The Spoils, a new essay by Olivia Laing, who writes, ‘How can you paint all this? Put your body in the middle of it and hope to catch a flash as something vanishes or changes state. The only way to walk in the crowd is to submit to its sleepwalker pace, and maybe these pictures are a little like that. Lido, vaporetto, tramezzini on a plate. Everything is gorgeous, everything contains its secret evidence of death.’
