On the occasion of the 57th Venice Biennale, Victoria Miro inaugurates its new gallery in Venice with the opening of “Poolside Magic”: a solo exhibition gathering together for the first time a selection of pastel, charcoal and watercolor works on paper by the artist Chris Ofili. The show deals with themes as sexuality, mutability, magic and the occult, making reference to the vibrant and sensuous landscape and culture of Trinidad, where the artist lives and works.
From the 9th to the 14th of May 2017 the exhibition will be open from 10:30am to 7pm, for the Biennale opening days.
