EXHIBITIONS IN OTHER PLACES

Damien Hirts, “Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable” at the Palazzo Grassi and Punta Della Dogana – Venice

“Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable” is the first major exhibition dedicated to Damien Hirst in Italy since the 2004 retrospective at the “Museo Archeologico Nazionale” of Naples. And for the occasion, the Pinault Foundation Team did not do things halfway. It is the first time that two entire spaces of the foundation are entirely dedicated to one artist. The exhibition extents over nearly 5000 square meters and invites the visitors to discover the cargo of the wrecked ship “unbelievable”, the impressive collection of Aulus Calidius Amotan, a freed slave better known as Cif Amotan II, destined to a temple dedicated to the sun, and of course, straight out of the imagination of the artist. More than an exhibition, this event is a crazy treasure hunt.

When? From April 9 to December 3, 2017

Where? Campo San Samuele, 3231, 30124 Venice, Italy

 

Helmut Newton, “Icons” at the Charles Nègre Museum of Photography – Nice
