Fondazione dell'Albero d'Oro presents, as Collateral Event of the 59. Esposizione Internazionale d'Arte - La Biennale di Venezia, a new and original project by Mexican artist Bosco Sodi at Palazzo Vendramin Grimani, a historic residence on the Grand Canal in Venice, from 23 April to 27 November 2022. Curated by Daniela Ferretti and Dakin Hart, the solo exhibition of Sodi's paintings and sculptures, entitled Bosco Sodi a Palazzo Vendramin Grimani. What Goes Around Comes Around will be preceded by a period of artist residency in the palace's spaces.
In the installation for Palazzo Vendramin Grimani, visitors will witness an abrupt reversal of the ancient flow of trade between Europe and the Americas. The opulent interiors of mercantile dwellings such as Palazzo Vendramin Grimani hold the memory of what was, historically, a one-way flow of materials: Sodi's temporary occupation of the palace's walls and floors with works closely connected to the material instinct that produced them will therefore lead to a kind of 'revenge' of the raw.
On the occasion of this extraordinary opening, Palazzo Vendramin Grimani will be open at a reduced rate from 18:00 to 21:00.
