Located in the historic center of the Lagoon city, Palazzo Manfrin is the original seat of a nucleus of important masterpieces now housed in the Gallerie dell'Accademia in Venice. Anish Kapoor's new exhibition with its dual location creates a bridge between two historically, artistically and architecturally significant places through works that are deeply reflected in the unique characteristics of Venice, provoking existential reflections on space, light, permanence on and on the void. The exhibition includes both retrospective elements and new works shown for the first time, created using carbon nanotechnology and flanked by recent paintings and sculptures that reveal the always pioneering and exciting path of Kapoor's artistic production. On this occasion, Palazzo Manfrin also inaugurates the new permanent headquarters of the Anish Kapoor Foundation.
