Historynow by Marc Quinn

In conjunction with the 59th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, the National Archaeological Museum of Venice is hosting until October 23, 2022 the exhibition of Marc Quinn entitled “Historynow“, curated by Francesca Pini and Aindrea Emelife, a new chapter in the ten-year project History Paintings of the British artist.

Forty-eight new paintings and one sculpture (Stele) will be on display, in keeping with the museum’s collection of classical antiquities.

The artist’s works originate as iPhone screenshots, and the exhibition aims to reproduce a scrolling journey through digital feeds of international reach, whose content oscillates between celebrity news and current events. With these works, the artist explores historical but very current themes such as ideals of beauty, power, war, and acts of heroism.

The event is also an opportunity to celebrate the reopening of the historic entrance to the Archaeological Museum from Piazzetta San Marco, after more than twenty years of closure to the public.
