Germany – “Venice. City of artists” exhibition and conference to celebrate La Serenissima

Venice is a place full of nostalgia. Like no other city it has inspired, through the centuries, not only visitors but also artists. The palaces, whose foundations rest in the sea and their architectures overlook the Grand Canal, appear as a spectacle created to provoke a reaction among artists. From the 1500s to the beginning of the 20th century, painters have celebrated Venice as an urban setting where water, gondolas and pageants have always staged a marvellous public performance. Their vision of the city has contributed to shaping the image of Venice. The paintings by Vittore Carpaccio, Canaletto, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, William Turner, John Ruskin, Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot, Claude Monet, Wassily Kandinsky, Gerhard Richter or Candida Höfer, displayed in the exhibition “Venice. City of artists” at Hamburg’s Bucerius Kunst Forum, are dedicated to the pan-European dimension of Venice’s unique artistic production from the 16th century to our days. At 7 p.m. on Tuesday, 27 September, Kathrin Baumstrak, curator of the Bucerius Kunst Forum, will present the exhibition in a conference held at the Italian Cultural Institute in Hamburg. The exhibition, which will run from 1 October to 15 January 2017, is sponsored by the Italian Embassy in Berlin.
