highlights



This month at the 795 Art Gallery

Upcoming:
"Beyond Reflections", photos by Giuseppe Cozzi at ART@Hilton.

Opening reception cocktail:
1° August 2015 at the Giudecca 795 Art Gallery, at 6:30 pm
followed by the visit to the show with the Author



An intimate, eternal and even primordial Venice, in the beautiful photographs and in the eyes of those who found the will and the courage to get up at dawn, and wake up to the morning light in the silence of the almost deserted city, overwhelmed by the colors of the sky and the lagoon. Cozzi, photographer of great technique and passion, hands us the keys of our city (he, another "foreigner" guest at ART@Hilton and Giudecca 795 Art Gallery). In fact, beyond the reflexes of an obvious romantic cliche, there is still a city that lives on her beauty, and that of Cozzi is the "evolved look" of those who met her for the first time as tourists and felt deeply in love. Often his camera captures the gestures of unknown passers, but his work here focuses on the celebration of the landscape created by the geometry of lines and light.
The exhibition "Beyond the reflections" can be visited at the Hilton Hotel every day from 9aM to 11PM on the ground floor of the hotel (Hall and Lounge Campiello). It's his first solo show in Venice. The exhibition ART@Hilton is accompanied by some high quality prints on display in the gallery Giudecca 795 (100 meters from the Hotel): in summer the gallery is open from 5pm to 9pm every day except Monday and a break from 10 to 25 August: for appointments please call +39 3408798327. We will be happy to greet you with a drink in the Giudecca 795alelry g on August 1 from 18.30. The exhibition is recommended by ExpoVeneto.


Our "Contemporary Renaissance" project reaches a new stage. Our galleries in Venezia are hosting the new art by Giulio Rigoni, and his solo show is also on at ART@Hilton (at the Hilton Molino Stucky Venice curated by the Giudecca 795 Art Gallery) presenting three main new works. The first is about Orpheus, the legendary musician, poet, and prophet. Artist par excellence, demon of nature, a shaman who was able to enchant every living being and even the stones with his music — all used to bring his beloved Eurydice back from the underworld — Orpheus is an archetypical figure portrayed in poetry, film, opera, music, and painting. In the myth of the 50 Argonauts, only Orpheus’s music could move their boat from the port where it had been forcibly stopped for months. According to the Greeks, Orpheus is the founder and prophet of the Orphic mysteries, which place him in a suspended dimension that is evoked by Rigoni's paintings. The polyptych "Distant Lands" shown at the Dakar Biennale, represents the meeting of Europe (Venice) and Africa, depicting Africa from a personal, westernised point of view but one that enhances both fantasy and ancestry to create a universal language: Africa presented as a real experience and as a point of departure for human history that is able to reflect and awaken all our visions and imagination. The third main work of the exhibition is a fantasy scene in which the artist plays with the imagination, the Venetian atmosphere, and a large protective figure.
The ART@Hilton show can be visited daily at the Hilton Hotel, Giudecca 810, from 9am to 11pm in the Campiello Lounge


The exhibiting programme at the gallery and for ART@Hilton on the occasion of the Biennale and the International Expo 2015 has started with the solo show of the 22 years old Gjon Jakaj, from Kosovo, who fled the war with his family ad, as a result of this experience, focused on the joy of living, leading the viewer to the discovery of small, priceless moments. Much of his photographic work on display is inspired by bread, imbued with strong symbolic meaning. Giudecca 795 chose to present these works in Venezia inside the historic former mills where they enhance the connection between past and present. The works are now on show at the gallery, together with Jakaj's reportage of the opening of the Expo 2015. And the NOExpo demostration.

We are pleased to announce our upcoming free mobile App, for live updates about our events and opening hours always at your fingertip. Keeping in touch will be really easy!

Ongoing projects by represented artists


Schisci Lab
The most recent collaboration is about design , completely customisable in its materials. empre presente il richiamo al passato artistico e culturale anche per le creazioni più "techno". See Schisci in the permanent exhibit space at the Connectivity station gallery of the Molino Stucky Hilton Venice


Jan Mizo
"Exposti"

Art as a code of the extraordinary in the daily routines, witnessing escape attempts, and expressions which have been too long stifled and caged in rules that have lost credibility. A precursor of digital art, increasingly recognized internationally. >> More



Marcelle Ottier
Paintings, objets d'art and a brand new logo for her bijoux collection made in Murano glass combined with other and less expected materials; an artist of great personality, with an ecological approach to design.
Crossed collaborations in artistic settings with Jan Mizo and Benny Katz. Colorful works on paper and mixed media are shown in the Executive lounge gallery


Giulio Rigoni
Would you believe it? A contemporary painter who could be a pre-Renaissance one, Rigoni masters ancient techniques and precious materials such as gold leaf, creating unforgettable characters, situations, and atmospheres with irony and fantasy. Amazing works of art.
Presented with a great success in the show "Contemporary Renaissance". Giulio Rigoni is the Italian artist invited to take part to the official section of Dak'Art 2014, the most important art biennial in Africa.


Venice from the Sky
An archive counting thousands of aerial images - a hundred out of which have been gathered in the photobook "Venice from Above" - originated our omonimous touring exhibit. Every picture can be printed on demand (on paper, panel, canvas).
Presented at the Gallery and ART@Hilton.



Neil Harbisson
"Cyber Venezia: the Sound of Burano"

Harbisson, born in Belfast in 1982, defines himself as a cyborg, because of this "third eye" being permanently attached to his head. The Eyeborg, created by Harbisson with the help of a Cybernetic researcher - has become an exciting new door to the world of art and music. His latest project is Cyber Venezia, presented during Art Night Venezia. In collaboration with the Istituto Veneto di Scienze Lettere ed Arti.
