Giulio Manieri Elia, the director of the Gallerie dell'Accademia di Venezia, is proud to announce Willem de Kooning e l'Italia, a great exhibition dedicated to Willem de Kooning, amongst the most original and influential artists of the 20th century.
The inauguration is planned on April 17 2024, at the same time as the 60th International Art Exhibition organized by La Biennale di Venezia.
The exhibition will be the first one to investigate the impact that de Kooning's Italian stays, in 1959 and 1969, had on his ouvre.
The works he relized in Italy and the influence our country had on the paintings, drawings and sculptures he made in the US has never been thoroughly examined before. The lasting impact of these two creative periods will be revealed through a selection of works he made from the end of the 1950s until the 1980s.
Willem de Kooning e l'Italia partners with the Willem de Kooning Foundation, an artist-endowed, private foundation whose mission is to foster the study and appreciation of Willem de Kooning's life and work through research, exhibitions and educational programs.
Curated by Gary Garrels and Mario Codognato.
Dates: April 17 – September 15 2024.
