Beautiful Tomorrow - Exhibition - Palazzo Franchetti - Venice


Beautiful Tomorrow is the title of the first solo show in Italy by Joseph Klibansky.

The exhibition, hosted in Palazzo Franchetti, the prestigious headquarters of the Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti, is curated by Luca Berta, Francesca Giubilei and Demetrio Paparoni. It opens to the public from March 24th to May 1st, displaying more than 30 works that narrate the spectacular creative path of one of the most interesting young artists from The Netherlands.

A 7-meter spaceman precariously balances on top of a giant chair along the Grand Canal. A frowning gorilla blows a toy trumpet in the ballroom of a luxurious noble palace. The rainforest grows between silk brocades to reveal a golden sculpture. The photo-paintings by Klibansky, in which familiar urban landscapes overlap with remote wild environments, will be displayed along with his irreverent and poetic sculptures in resin, bronze, gold leaf. The exhibition catalogue will be published by Skira.

The exhibition is supported by BVDS Gallery.

March 24th – May 1st 2016
