Heinz Mack in Venice

24th April – 17th .July 2022

Solo Exhibition
Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana
Piazza San Marco n.52
IT-30124 Venedig, Italien

From April 23 to July 17, 2022, the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana (Ministero della Cultura), located directly on St. Mark’s Square, will present the Collateral Event with the selected works by the award-winning artist under the title “Heinz Mack – Vibration of Light / Vibrazione della luce”.  The Collateral Event shows in an imposing spatial installation an impressive cross-section of Mack’s oeuvre of the last 60 years: beside large-scale paintings, a group of partly rotating light steles and a four-meter-high mirror sculpture, created especially for this exhibition, will be presented. In what is arguably one of Venice’s most iconic venues, the historical significant Sala Sansoviniana, accessible exclusively through the Museo Correr, Mack’s works are set in an art- historically impressive dialogue with wall and ceiling paintings by Titian, Tintoretto, and Veronese. As a further highlight, a 3.40-meter high stainless-steel stele by the artist is positioned in an inner courtyard of the Palazzo Reale, which adjoints the Biblioteca Marciana and is freely accessible from both St. Mark’s Square and the Giardini Reali.
