  • CONEGLIANO, Palazzo Sarcinelli:  TEODORO WOLF FERRARI. LA MODERNITA´ DEL PAESAGGIO. The show, curated by Giandomenico Romanelli and Franca Lugato, has the aim of shedding light on the emblematic and still little-studied figure of Wolf Ferrari. The exhibition consists of more than 60 works which allow us to enter the studio of this “poet of the landscape” and contemplate through paintings, watercolours, decorative panels, stained glass and studies for postcards, all now exhibited for the first time, the gentle hills that stretch from Asolo to Conegliano and the Grappa uplands, or darker and more disturbing scenarios that hold a deep feeling of mystery. From 2 feb. till 24 june.  – See: Sarcinelli
  • TREVISO, Museo Civico di Santa Caterina: –  AUGUSTE RODIN. Thanks to the indispensable collaboration with the Musée Rodin, Paris, this exhibition will show a total of 80 works, consisting of 50 of the most celebrated sculptures and 30 drawings. It promises to be a fascinating event from the point of view of the significant, historical and critical survey, also pursued in the accompanying catalogue. Moreover, the Treviso exhibition will mark the end of the centennial year of Auguste Rodin’s death (1917). This is because the Parisian museum decided to include the Treviso show in the official program of exhibitions – there have been none in Italy so far – to celebrate this important anniversary in worldwide venues, such as the Grand Palais in Paris last spring and the Metropolitan Museum in New York at present. Treviso will thus be the only Italian venue in this international program. From 24 feb. till 3 june. See: Rodin
  • VENICE, Museum Correr, Marco´s Square: SPLENDORS OF THE RENAISSANCE IN VENICE. Right from the outset, the art of Andrea Meldolla, better known as Schiavone (Zara, circa 1510-15 – Venice, 1563) divided Venetian public opinion for his evident nonconformity. A fine draughtsman and prolific etcher, he was appreciated by Giorgio Vasari, who in 1540 commissioned a Battle between Charles V and Barbarossa from him, subsequently given to Ottaviano de’ Medici. In his Lives, Vasari declared that in Schiavone, he saw the embodiment of a “certain manner that is used in Venice, that is dashed off, or rather, sketched, without being in any respect finished”. Now the city celebrates the artist in the first retrospective to be ever dedicated to him, examining Schiavone’s production thanks to many international loans and the latest critical studies, together with his relationship with the more well-known Venetian artists of the time. Schiavone’s work, admired by Marco Boschini and which stimulated the enthusiasm of El Greco, was solitary, non-academic and in some ways rebellious; an evident feature is his role as precursor in the definition of a new synthetic style, with a sometimes almost “informal” touch, that was able to influence even Titian and Tintoretto. The exhibition will, for the very first time allow scholars and the interested public to see brought together a substantial number of works by Schiavone in all three of the media in which he significantly worked – namely, etching, painting, and drawing – and in all phases of his career from youthful (ca. 1540) to very late (c. 1562). In addition to the many and various works on display by Schiavone himself, the exhibition includes a selection of well-chosen of paintings and engravings by other Cinquecento artists known to Schiavone with a view to clarifying the nature of their relationships with him. These include Parmigianino – so important in Schiavone’s youthful development and never left wholly behind – and the codifiers of the Florentine Maniera, Vasari and Francesco Salviati, both present and active in Venice in 1539-42. The exhibition shows us many of Schiavone’s creative variations and transformations of prototypes originating with these artists and with Raphael. Among his Venetian contemporaries – Tintoretto, Titian, Sustris, Bassano, and others – are represented here by particularly relevant examples of their work, allowing the visitor to assay the nature of Schiavone’s relationships to them and theirs to him. In very many different ways, then, this exhibition will inform and expand our appreciation of this highly talented painter, etcher, and draftsman whose individual sensibility allowed him to combine a wholehearted receptivity to Emilian and Maniera formal ideas with a radical interpretation of Venetian painterly values and techniques – this being visible in his etchings as well as his paintings – an interpretation so radical, so extreme as to scandalize some of the artists’ contemporaries (e.g., Paolo Pino 1548, “Quell’ empiastrar … degna d’infamia”). It was this paradoxical combination that made Andrea Schiavone “a catalytic agent in the evolution of Venetian painting in the sixteenth century,” as well as an individual fascinating artist in his own right Making use of loans from some of Europe’s leading museums – from the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna to the Musée du Louvre in Paris, and from the National Gallery and British Museum of London to the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister of Dresden – this exhibition will finally make it possible to rediscover this brilliant artist as an independent master, but also to appreciate his diversified activities in the fields of drawings, prints, illustrated books and the applied arts. – 28.11.-10.4.2016 See: correr

  • VENICE, Palazzo Grassi:  COWS BY THE WATER – ALBERT OEHLEN. From Sunday 8 April 2018, Palazzo Grassi presents a personal exhibition dedicated to German artist Albert Oehlen (1954, Krefeld, Germany) and curated by Caroline Bougeois. The exhibition lays out a path dedicated to Albert Oehlen’s production through a selection of approximately 85 works, including some lesser-known ones, created between the 1980s and today. The works brought together come from the Pinault Collection as well as from other major private collections and international museums. The unique exhibition path is not chronological but rather suggests a syncopated rhythm between various genres and periods, thereby underlining the central role played by music in the artist’s practice. Music emerges as a real metaphor of his work method, where contamination and rhythm, improvisation and repetition, density and harmony of sounds become pictorial gestures. Albert Oehlen (1954, Krefeld, Germany) reveals himself to be a major figure of contemporary painting thanks to his artistic research in constant evolution, dedicated to experiments and to overcoming formal limits rather than to the subject represented.The artist’s work has already be presented in exhibitions around the world, including at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Havana in 2017, the Cleveland Museum of Art in 2016, the New Museum in New York in 2015, the Kunstmuseum in Bonn in 2012 and the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris in 2009. The show in Venice is his largest monographic one to date. From 8 april till 2 dic.  See: Palazzograssi
  • VENICE. Punta della Dogana: DANCING WITH MYSELF.  From Sunday 8 April 2018, Punta della Dogana presents ‘Dancing with myself’, a collective show of works from the Pinault Collection conceived in collaboration with the Folkwang Museum in Essen, Germany,Curated by Martin Bethenod, Florian Ebner and Anna Fricke, the collective exhibition ‘Dancing with Myself’ stems from the collaboration between the Pinault Collection and the Folkwang Museum in Essen, where a first version of the show was presented in 2016. ‘Dancing with Myself’ faces the primordial importance of the artist’s role as actor and material of his own creations, from the 1970s to today. The exhibition brings together a great range of artistic practices and languages (photography, video, painting, sculpture, installation…), cultures, geographic origins, generations and experiences, to establish a tension between extremely different artistic approaches: melancholy of vanity, ironic play with identity, political biography and existential questioning, the body as sculpture, effigy or fragment of its symbolic substitute. Approximately 100 works from the Pinault Collection – from Claude Cahun to LaToya Ruby Frazier, from Gilbert & George to Cindy Sherman, and from Alighiero Boetti to Maurizio Cattelan – are on display alongside a selection of works on loan from the Folkwang Museum. The show is greatly rethought for Punta della Dogana and includes 45 works that did not feature in the version presented in Essen. From 8 april till 2 dic. See: Palazzograssi

  • VENICE, Museo Fortuny. THE ZURIGO ROOM. A TRIBUTE TO ZORAN MUSIC:  In 1949, Zoran Mušicˇ (Bocavizza, 1909 – Venice, 2005) was commissioned by sisters Charlotte and Nelly Dornacher to decorate the basement of their villa in Zollikon near Zurich. The result was to be an example of a “total work of art”: in addition to creating paintings on plaster and on jute and linen canvas, the artist also designed the decorative patterns embroidered on the curtains and tablecloth that adorned the room. Several pieces of furniture, though not designed by him, were chosen on his agreement and completed the space created for holding social gatherings. Most of the paintings were applied directly onto the wall plaster, five further compositions on linen cloth were stretched on frames attached to the walls, while decorated jute cloth was used for the entrance door, the same fabric as the curtains and a tablecloth embroidered to a design by the artist, who chose the colours and the various embroidery stitches. After years of neglect and abandonment, the room has been restored, thanks to the intervention of Paolo Cadorin, Mušicˇ ’s brother-in-law and director of the restoration department of Basel Kunstmuseum. He oversaw the removal of the plaster, its transfer on aluminium honeycomb panels, and the restoration of the canvases and furniture. This complex task, completed by Cadorin’s students, finally returns “Zoran’s room” to thepublic through its recreation at Palazzo Fortuny as the central element of an exhibition and tribute to its creator. The many design motifs of an almost dizzying richness that Mušicˇ created for this room constitute a sort of iconographic compendium of artistic production in those years: from the Dalmatian motifs of women on horseback o carrying parasols, to donkeys and ponies in the rocky landscape or dancing in the void; from the ferries filled with horses or cattle, to the decorative borders of lozenges, stripes, spirals, roundels and tiles; and from the framed, hieratic faces recalling the work of Campigli, to an “iconic” portrait of Ida looking in the mirror and a self-portrait of Mušicˇ himself. In addition, there are the views of Venice: the domes and façade of the Basilica, the Palazzo Ducale, balustrades, arches, the piazza porticoes, the Basin of San Marco, San Giorgio, the Doganaand the fishing boats. An extensive discerning selection of works created between 1947 and 1953, gathered from private collections and from the artist’s archive, completes the exhibition itinerary.  From 24 march till 23 july. – See: Zoran Music
  • VERONA: Palazzo Forti (AMO Arena Museo Opera): L’ARTE A VERONA TRA AVANGURADIA E TRADIZIONE.  L’OTTOCENTO E IL PRIMO NOVECENTO DA HAYEZ A CASORATI.  Primo importante appuntamento per la valorizzazione del nuovo Sistema Museale unico della Città di Verona, impegnata nella creazione di nuovi percorsi espositivi presso le proprie sedi museali. La Galleria d’Arte Moderna Achille Forti apre le porte di Palazzo della Ragione con una mostra che rinnova il percorso espositivo permanente della collezione civica. L’esposizione della collezione storica, sviluppata al piano nobile del Palazzo, curata dalla direttrice Francesca Rossi, intende mettere in evidenza una caratteristica costante della cultura artistica di Verona attraverso i secoli, la capacità di misurarsi con un crocevia di culture diverse pur affermandosi come centro di produzione autonomo e originale. Lungo l’arco di oltre un secolo, tra Ottocento e primo Novecento, Verona è stata protagonista di scambi e relazioni culturali e artistiche con Milano (la cultura accademica, il risorgimento, la scapigliatura, il divisionismo), con Venezia, Firenze, Napoli e con la cultura nordica. La città è animata in questo periodo da un forte senso civico e dal mecenatismo di autorevoli personalità locali, che si riflette in importanti commissioni artistiche e nella promozione di iniziative culturali a sostegno delle arti. Il percorso, articolato in tre sale, presenta circa 90 opere tra dipinti, lavori su carta e sculture che illustrano episodi distintivi della storia e della cultura figurativa veronese e italiana tra il 1830 e il 1920, in una incalzante dialettica tra i poli dell’ avanguardia e della tradizione. – From 29 march 2018 till 28 february 2019. – See: Galleria Arte Moderna Verona.

  • BOZEN, Naturmuseum Südtirol: The Return of the bears. – Since 2005 it has been possible to see brown bears in South Tyrol once again. Their return follows repopulation efforts in Trentino as part of an Interreg project for the conservation of the bears of the Adamello Brenta massif. Bears are solitary creatures and each one lives in its own territory. This means that young bears – especially the males – have to move away from the area where they were born in search of their own home range. Unfortunately, on 21 April 2012 the journey of one two-year-old bear came to an end on the road to Kollmann. The animal has been stuffed and it is now on display in the Museum of Nature, as part of an exhibition about the habits and characteristics of bears, with details of where they can currently be found in the Alps, the methods used to study them, and their relationship with humans throughout history. In a natural colonization process, wolves too are starting to settle in the Alps once again. They are going about it in a very covert way, as is to be expected of these shy, cautious animals, which are very difficult to spot in the wild. In the museum you can see the latest maps of the areas where they roam. – 15.04.2013 till 31.12.2015. See: Naturmuseum

  • MILAN,Mudec:  FRIDA KAHLO. OLTRE IL MITOFrida Kahlo was very seductive and continues to be also 110 years after her birth. This is why the city of Milan is staging the most important European exhibition ever devoted to the most famous and acclaimed Mexican woman painter. This show and tribute will be held from February 1, 2018 to June 3, 2018 at the new Museum of Cultures (MUDEC) of Milan designed by David Chipperfield (www.mudec.it). The exhibition will include oils, drawings, watercolours, letters and photographs, and we intend to bring together works by Frida that have never been displayed in Italy before. The exhibition will point out that Frida still holds many secrets. Apart from the numerous books that have been written about her, the Milan event will reveal, through artworks and documents, that Frida Kahlo was in effect a political activist, that she was aware of Diego Rivera’s influence on her painting and sought to avoid it, that she had a keen interest in drawing and, above all, that she was a great painter. It will also show that as well as expressing herself dramatically in her painting, Frida was also extremely witty and ironical, and brought a sensuality to her still lifes, like nobody else. – From 1 feb.- 3 jun. – See: Kahlo
