This Month at 795

Solo show at the Gallery:
"Portraits" by Fernando Garcia Monzon,
21 March - 6 April 2014

Opening: Friday 21 March 2014 from 18:00, Giudecca 795 Art Gallery.
Giudecca 795 hosts "RITRATTI" (portraits), Fernando Garcia-Monzon's solo show, one of the most interesting and innovative portrait artists of today. The vernissage on 21 March is a good chance to meet him. The Spanish artist and architect was awarded the Special Prize at the 7th edition of Premio Arte Laguna, at the Biennale Internazionale d’Arte Contemporanea di Firenze, ad at the Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts held at the Louvre Museum. The Venice solo show, open until 6 April 2014, presents fifteen pencil drawings on paper, made between 1999 and 2013. Giudecca 795 Art Gallery selected these works not only because of their beauty, but mostly because of Garcia-Monzon's skill for enlivening and making contemporary the portrait genre, in a real "anti-aging" process, and for his ability and sensitivity in the psychological search and representation. Also in front of uncomfortable emotions. For Garcia-Monzon as an architect, portraying is "like building", and the pencil is the means by which he was able to practise his passion in parallel with his job - as drawing in pencil is much more practical than oil painting. For Garcia-Monzon as an artist and man, "the most difficult thing in portrait making is not how to show what can be seen, but to show what we bear inside". Garcia-Monzon can do it, with subtle and disarming intelligence. Leading to intense results in the representation of the psychological truth.

April ART@Hilton 2014

The 2014 programme of ART@Hilton, the art show hosted by Molino Stucky Hilton Venice and curated by Giudecca 795 Art Gallery continues with Françoise Calcagno from 1st April to 23 May. Her paintings are materic and evocative, mixing colors and fragmnents of images of Venice, the places she likes the most, as the Jewish Ghetto. Photography melts with abstract painting, enlivening atmospheres with no exact timing: Calcagno's painting is vibrant, and lets signs emerge, together with lace details and images discovered in a forgotten drawer of Memory.

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

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.

Francesco Zavatta

An intimate Venice, and not traditional at all. "Nella tempesta io ci sono" (In the tempest, I'll be there) is the painting which started this artistic search of his.
