Curated by Mario Codognato, the exhibition features new and recent works by the German artist Georg Baselitz. “Archinto” occupies the piano nobile of Palazzo Grimani with twelve canvases conceived for the Sala del Portego to dialogue with the Eighteenth-century architecture and decorations. Here, Baselitz homages Venice and its long-lasting artistic tradition, staging both a continuity and a breakup compared to it, specifically to the typical Renaissance portrait genre. The exhibition’s title draws inspiration from Titian’s enigmatic portrait of Cardinal Filippo Archinto (1558).
