Collateral event of the 59th international art exhibition La Biennale di VeneziaPALAZZOVENDRAMIN GRIMANI
23 APRIL – 27 NOVEMBER 2022
On the occasion of the Art Biennale 2022, Fondazione dell’Albero d’Oro will present a new project by Mexican artist Bosco Sodi at Palazzo Vendramin Grimani, located on the Grand Canal in the center of Venice, Italy from 23 April until 27 November 2022. Curated by Daniela Ferretti and Dakin Hart, the solo exhibition dedicated to Sodi’s painting and sculpture titled Bosco Sodi a Palazzo Vendramin Grimani What Goes Around Comes Around will be preceded by a period of residency by the artist on site at the palazzo.
In the installation for Palazzo Vendramin Grimani, visitors will witness an abrupt reversal of that ancient flow of trade between Europe and the Americas. The opulent interiors of merchant houses like Palazzo Vendramin Grimani preserve the memory of what was, historically, a one-way flow of materials. Sodi’s temporary occupation of the palazzo’s walls and floors with works closely linked to the material instinct that produces them will lead to a sort of ‘revenge’ of all that is raw, unprocessed.
