Exhibition at the gallery of the Wilmotte Foundation - La Dolce Venezia

Following the success of the exhibition "Venice ‘55 / ’65" which brought together two great photographers Gianni Gardin and Sergio Del Pero, the Wilmotte Foundation and the Circolo Fotografico la Gondola are renewing their collaboration.
This new exhibition "La Dolce Venezia" stages images, memories, which transcribe the plural spirit of the city of the Doges, the beauty of its forms, of its architecture, out of time and in the same time extremely alive. The works chosen highlight the constant dialogue between its architectural heritage and the life.


More than thirty photographs from the Circolo La Gondola photographic archives (including more than 25,000 photographs of post-war Italy) will accompany the visitor throughout his visit. Through works by well-known and lesser-known artists, the exhibition will highlight Venetian daily life, memories of the city, of which architecture is the witness; but also dreams and the future.

Address: Fondamenta dell’Abbazia, Cannaregio 3560 - 30121 Venice Italy - Opening hours: 10:00am-1:30pm / 2:00pm-6:00pm - Closed on Mondays and public holidays

« Venice Wood Water » exhibition of Korean artist Lee Bae at the Wilmotte Foundation gallery

From June 16 to November 24, Wilmotte Foundation Gallery welcomes “Venice Wood Water” exhibition by South Korean artist Lee Bae during the Venice Art Biennale 2019.

 

For Jean-Michel Wilmotte, there is a beautiful resonance between Venice and the work of Lee Bae: his assemblies of carbonized bundles of wood, resembling the columns of Venetian palaces, and his large splashes of black, evoking the waters of the lagoon, spread across immaculate wax surfaces.

 

Address: Fondamenta dell’Abbazia, Cannaregio 3560 - 30121 Venezia Italy - Open 10:00am-1:30pm - 2:00pm-6:00pm - Closed on Mondays and bank holidays

Inauguration de l'exposition Big Venice à la Galerie Wilmotte

The story begins in 1947, in Venice, but it was from 1958 that photographers and friends Dino Jarach, Claudio Gallo, Duilio Stigher, Enrico Busato, Celio Scapin and Walter Stefani became known as a group, under the name of CAMERAPHOTO.

Their purpose ? To reflect and immortalize the reality... #nofilter !

From 1947 to 1987, they captured all the events that made the History of the Serenissima, like the visit in 1954 of the circus Togni and its elephants, camels and others animals.

BIG VENICE comes back on this unique event through a selection of orginal shots.

It is to discover from February 17th to May 2nd, 2019 at the Wilmotte Gallery in Venice Galerie.
