With this large retrospective show at the Museo Correr, the Musei Civici Veneziani celebrates the work of Enzo Cucchi, one of the most significant of contemporary Italian artists. The carefully-designed exhibition contains a selection of works and cycles of paintings produced in the period from the late 1970s to the present day.
Numbering over one hundred, the paintings and drawings come from such important museums as the Guggenheim in New York and Bilbao, the Louisiana Museum for Moderne Kunst in Humlebæk, the Stedelijk in Amsterdam, the Kunsthaus in Zurich, the Kunsthalle in Hamburg, the Castello di Rivoli in Turin and many others. Charting the full range of Enzo Cucchi’s work from the period when he first made his appearance on the international stage, they reveal the extraordinary variety and richness of his art.
