LOCATION: Museo Correr, P.za San Marco, Venezia
The Museo Correr's initiative falls close to the centenary of the birth of Carla Accardi who, although she lived in Rome, established a constant link with Venice throughout her life, both individually and professionally. Among other things, in 1948 she made her debut at the Biennale, returning to it in 1964 (personal room introduced in the catalogue by Carla Lonzi), in 1976, in 1988 (personal room) and in 1993, also appearing in the 2022 edition. Works, photos and other documentary material attest to her relationship with the lagoon city including an image from 1952 when, on the occasion of an exhibition at the Galleria del Cavallino, she visited the Guggenheim collection with her husband, the artist Antonio Sanfilippo, and Tancredi Parmeggiani.
The Venetian project curated by Pier Paolo Pancotto, as a homage and not an anthological exhibition, presents, in the form of an installation, a restricted selection of works placed in dialogue with the museum's historical rooms. This is a small number of works, rarely visible but, despite their particularity, entirely indicative of the artist's research and, in their own way, summarising his creative path.
OPENING HOURS: daily 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. (last entrance at 5 p.m.).
