Studio la Città: Recursions and Mutations / After J.M. W. Turner 1834 – 2019
May 8 – July 28, 2019
GAD – Giudecca Art District, Isola della Giudecca, Venice
The Studio la Città gallery presents two exhibition projects on the Giudecca Island, concurrently with the 58th edition of the Venice Biennale: “Recursions and Mutations” presents works by artists Vincenzo Castella, Lynn Davis, Jacob Hashimoto and Roberto Pugliese. The exhibition examines the process of reiteration and change in the poetics of the four artists as analytical device for examining the reality around us. “After J.M. W. Turner 1834 – 2019” is a series of variously sized light-boxes by Hiroyuki Masuyama. The artist draws inspiration from the works produced by the English painter Joseph Mallord William Turner to document his journeys to Italy.
