Contemporary Art Intermingles with Italian Renaissance in “Contemporary Dialogues with Tintoretto”

By Pearl Fontaine

December 19, 2018

In honor of the 500th anniversary of artist Jacopo Tintoretto’s birth, the Polo museale del Veneto, Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia, and Zuecca Projects have presented “Contemporary Dialogues with Tintoretto.” Curated by Ludovico Pratesi, the exhibition takes Tintoretto’s preserved masterpieces at Venice’s Palazzo Ducale and Galleria Giorgio Franchetti alla Ca’ d’Oro and pairs them with works by leading contemporary artists whose style and attitudes have been influenced by the master painter.

Devised with an itinerary across the two venues, the show includes two sections—“Faces” and “Stories”—that create discussions on questions like, “What does it mean to paint today?” and “What conceptual and stylistic issues are faced by painters with different and distant cultural traditions?”

By showcasing the works of 13 artists including Emilio Vedova, Matthew Monahan, Michael Borremans, Josh Smith, Chantal Joffe, Wangechi Mutu, and Celia Paul alongside Tintoretto, the project offers a reflection on the extreme modernity of the master painter.

“Contemporary Dialogues with Tintoretto” will be on view at both Palazzo Ducale and Galleria Giorgio Franchetti alla Ca’ d’Oro in Venice through January 7, 2019.
