Emilio Vedova at Palazzo Reale

Emilio Vedova at Palazzo Reale
#Exhibitions

A wall thirty metres long and 5 metres high, surrounded by a luminous independent structure diagonally crossing the space in a “contrast of situations” as Emilio Vedova would say, acts as a frame to around seventy works by the Venetian artist. Some are imposingly large, such as the celebrated Absurdes Berliner Tagebuch '64 which is on display in its entirety. The exhibition, curated by Germano Celant, dialogues with the spectacular Sala delle Cariatidi of the Palazzo Reale. The aim of the itinerary is to showcase, in the two opposing sections, the innovative and radical aspects of the linguistic contribution of Vedova to modern and contemporary art, comparing the works of the ‘60s - paintings and sculptures, such as the series Plurimi - with the large canvases and the Dischi of the ‘80s, installed in the floor. In this dialogue of extremes, the work of the Venetian painter finds its rightful place in the context of international contemporary art.
