WOLFGANG LAIB | Crossing the river | SOLO SHOW

WOLFGANG LAIB | Crossing the river | SOLO SHOW

Ever since his journeys to India as a young man the idea inspired him to see humans as part of a largerwhole. He also follows this way of life in his art. Thereby the artist tracks down the universal, the eternal and works with natural materials such as pollen, rice, milk or bees wax. However, he also finds this holistic understanding in our culture. In the juxtaposition between a small mound of colour-intensive pollen and a eucharist casket Wolfgang Laib creates an astonishing relationship. The presentation is in a laid-out field of thousands of rice mounds. As an important foodstuff rice symbolises vitality and is fundamental for our earthly existence. With the temporary installation the artist manifests the spiritual dimension of art and leads us directly to the source of his poetics.

Alcuni Appunti. Disegni 2005-2021 underscores how for Gian Maria Tosatti the drawing, which usually does not represent a completed work in his research, is a first, fundamental planning step preparatory to an installation work, a true project drawing.

GIOVANNI ANSELMO, PAOLO ICARO AND ETTORE SPALLETTI | Vita Nuova. New Challenges For Art in Italy 1960-1975 | Mamac, Nice

For the first time in France since 1981, the MAMAC presents a major project dedicated to the Italian art scene between 1960 and 1975. “Vita Nuova. New challenges for art in Italy. 1960-1975” aims to uncover the extraordinary vivacity of artistic creation in Italy between 1960 and 1975, whose diversity remains very little known in France – with the exception of the works of Arte Povera artists.

Olmo Stuppia | First walk: Sacca San Mattia, Murano | Saturday, May 7th, h 7pm-12pm | After a brief drift in Cannaregio, the artist will sail from Venice to Sacca San Mattia, Murano: a man-made island where modernizing impulses failed a long ago and resulted in layering of colored-glass debris and rabbit feces. The artist will provide everyone with a kit for collecting glass pieces to be catalogued later; some poetic readings will take place in the meantime. | Meeting point 2839 fond.
