The exhibition “Francesco Vezzoli – Musei delle Lacrime” at the Correr Museum until November 24, 2024, curated by Donatien Grau, presents a fascinating exploration of the intersection between contemporary art and the historical legacy of Venice.

Over the past decade, Francesco Vezzoli has embarked on a profound artistic journey that bridges the gap between modern reality and the ancient traditions of art. With a focus on antiquity and its revered expressions, Vezzoli’s work delves into the sacred and solemn, offering a reinterpretation that is both timely and provocative.

In collaboration with Donatien Grau, Vezzoli conceived “Musei delle Lacrime”, an exhibition that juxtaposes his own works, including historical pieces and new creations specifically designed for the occasion, with masterpieces from the Correr Museum’s collection. This juxtaposition aims to spark a dialogue and create a new narrative that breathes life into art history, presenting it not as a static entity, but as a dynamic force that continues to evolve in the present.

By hybridizing themes and iconographies from different eras, especially religious motifs, Vezzoli invites viewers to reflect on concepts such as identity, authorship, and emotion. The exhibition serves as a testament to the enduring power of art to transcend time and inspire profound introspection.

Designed specifically for Venice, a city renowned for its artistic heritage and perpetual renewal, “Musei delle Lacrime” also pays homage to Carlo Scarpa and his contributions to the city’s cultural identity. Through a series of aesthetic and conceptual superimpositions, Vezzoli celebrates tradition while embracing the dialectical relationship between past and present, inviting viewers on a journey of contemplation and discovery.
