A member has told us about a major Venini Exhibition in Venice. It is quite possibly the most important exhibition on Venini since his death in 1959. 

The venue is in the centre of Venice. The exhibition which runs until the 8th January has been organised by the Fondacion Cini & is free.

There must be few better reasons to visit Venice this autumn.

David Reekie - '' Casual Bystanders'' Exhibition 17 Oct - 15 November 2015

 

“I use the title in my new series Casual Bystanders in an ironic and somewhat sarcastic way, in that there are elements within our society and political elite, who are blind to the growing problems in society and stand casually by as these problems grow”
