(Re-)Birth of Venus - Renaissance Painting 2.0
to Sun 22 Aug 2021
Wed-Fri 10am-4pm, Sat 10am-2pm

Known as the “Birth of Venus”, the composition actually shows the goddess of love and beauty arriving on land, on the island of Cyprus, born of the sea spray and blown there by the winds, Zephyr and, perhaps, Aura. The goddess is standing on a giant scallop shell, as pure and as perfect as a pearl. – Uffizi Galleries.

Beautiful blonde waves, a gracile nude female figure and a mythical scallop shell – In the mid 1480s, the Italian artist Sandro Botticelli changed the art world with his tempera masterpiece The Birth of Venus. His Italian Renaissance artwork set new standards for fine art and inspired artists all over the world in the centuries that followed.

Almost 540 years later, in (Re-)Birth of Venus – Renaissance Painting 2.0 some of todays most talked about contemporary artists take a deeper look at Botticelli’s masterpiece and reinterpret the mythical moment of the goddess’ arrival on land after her. As part of a Renaissance revival in this day and age, painting, sculpture, craftsmanship and street art merge together in this show.

Featuring 12 international contemporary artists: Jake Wood-Evans, Goin, Gao Hang, Paa Joe, Guillermo Lorca, Madsaki, Joseph Meloy, Amadeo Morelos, Ricardo Passaporte, Judy Rifka, Mircea Suciu and Sophie Vallance.
