Venezia Unica

Georg Baselitz

Through November 27, 2022
Museo di Palazzo Grimani, Venice

Archinto presents new and recent paintings and sculptures by  Georg Baselitz. Installed on the piano nobile, the exhibition includes twelve paintings made expressly for the Sala del Portego, which hang on eighteenth-century stucco-framed panels where portraits of the Grimani family had been on display until the end of the nineteenth century. In this show, Baselitz pays homage to Venice and its rich artistic tradition, establishing art historical continuity while also signaling a rupture between the Renaissance portrait tradition and its contemporary equivalents. The exhibition is curated by Mario Codognato and organized by Venetian Heritage and Direzione regionale Musei Veneto, in association with Gagosian.
