April’s art events

VENICE: A HOMMAGE TO KLIMT
Just like Vienna and Milan, Venezia is honoring the 150th anniversary of Gustav Klimt’s birth. The founder of Vienna Secession’s avant-garde artistic movement along with his friend Josef Hoffmann and other major artists, Klimt is celebrated through some of his most important works, some of which have been borrowed from Vienna’s Belvedere museum. Among the masterpieces on display is Klimt’s famous painting The Lovers.

Museo Correr, through July 8

 

LONDON: GENIUS AND PROVOCATION
London’s Tate Modern just launched a nice retrospective devoted to one of the most emblematic and yet questioned contemporary artists, Damien Hirst. The exhibition hosts some of his most iconic and famous works, such as The physical impossibility of death in the mind of someone living, consisting of a 14-foot tiger shark preserved in formaldehyde in a vitrine. Inside a darkened space, a platinum cast of a human skull encrusted with 8,601 flawless diamonds called For the love of God is on display and, ironically, everyone can access to the exhibition room for free. A nice opportunity to have a comprehensive view of the work of a disputed and brilliant artist.
Damien Hirst, Tate Modern, through September 9

 

PARIS: 150YEARS OF FASHION
The Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris celebrates two huge personalities – Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs – who, although separated by one and a half century, contributed to the history of fashion. While Vuitton managed to turn his leather trade shop into a fashion maison in just a few years, Jacobs, as the creative director of the French design house since1997, has been able to add a contemporary touch to an evergreen style. The exhibition devotes a whole floor of the museum to each one of them.

MEXICO CITY: A CELEBRATION
To celebrate the 80th birthday of Fernando Botero, the painter mostly known for his rounded forms, the Palace of Fine Arts in Mexico City is holding a major exhibition featuring over 180 works, may of which are huge-format paintings! Born a Colombian, Botero considers himself a citizen of the world, altough his main inspiration comes from Italy, and particularly from Reinassance Tuscan art  – he even owns a house in Tuscany where he spends his summer working on his paintings.

TOKYO: MAKING WAY FOR THE YOUNG
Born in Singapore in 1976, Ho Tzu Nyen is an emerging international artist whose works have been exhibited at some of the world’s major art events, such as  Sao Paulo Biennale and Venice Biennale in 2011. His poetic and theatrical world is influenced by philosophy, history and legends. One of his most recent works, The cloud of unknowing (see picture), is a multimedia installation offering the audience the chance to experience changes of space in the story caused by synergies of images and sounds. An exhibition held at Mori Museum explores the artist’s main works.
Ho Tzu Nyen, Mori Art Museum, fino al 27 maggio
