Fresh Perspective on the Artistic Legacy : Arshile Gorky
The artist’s first ever comprehensive survey in Italy to open at Ca’ Pesaro International Gallery of Modern Art in Venice.
On view from may 9th through September 22nd, “Arshile Gorky: 1904–1948” exhibition will showcase 80 of the artist’s works from early experiments to late paintings bridging surrealism and abstract-expressionism. In his painfully short life, Gorky became known for refusing the importance of theory and art historical narratives over individual artistic impulses, and synthesizing a new approach to painting, through various influences. The exhibition aims to offer a fresh perspective on Gorky’s legacy, contributing to the question whether he was he actually the first Post-Modernist. Save the date!
