Alongside Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, and Mark Rothko, Arshile Gorky is recognized as one of the pivotal figures of 20th century American Art. Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia presents the first retrospective survey of the American artist in Italy.

On view from May 8th through September 22nd, the retrospective reveals the evolution of Gorky’s distinctive artistic vocabulary, bringing together the artist’s most important works. The organizers aim not only reacquaint the audience with Gorky’s singular stance, but also show the prolific energy of a man who rejected borders and labels of all kinds. Come to the exhibition and answer and find the answer to the question, whether denying art historical categories and any limitations, such individual expression could only emerge from mid-century New York.

与Willem de Kooning,Jackson Pollock和Mark Rothko一样,Arshile Gorky被公认为20世纪美国艺术的关键人物之一。Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia展示了这位美国艺术家在意大利的首次回顾展。

从5月8日到9月22日,回顾展展示了Gorky独特的艺术的演变,汇集了这位艺术家最重要的作品。组织者不仅要以Gorky的独特姿态重新吸引观众,还要展示一个拒绝界限和各种标签定义的男人的多产能量。去到展览现场吧,回答并找到问题的答案,无论是否否认艺术的历史范畴和任何限制,这样的个人表达只能出现在世纪中叶的纽约。
