Fernando Zóbel at the 57th Venice Arts Biennale and more
The work of celebrated Spanish-Filipino artist Fernando Zóbel joins an illustrious roster of events at this year’s La Biennale di Venezia. Titled Fernando Zóbel. Contrapuntos, the retrospective features Zóbel’s output from 1957 to 1962, the time when he developed his signature style. The exhibition also highlights the distinctive blend of Asian and Western techniques and influences in his work as seen in pieces like Saetas and Serie Negra. Zóbel is no stranger to the Biennale, having exhibited in the 1962 Biennale as part of the Spanish Pavilion.
As a complementary event to the main exhibitions of the Art Biennale, Contrapuntos joins a showcase of artwork produced by artists from all over the globe.
Curated by Ditas Samson, Ayala Museum’s senior curator, and Madrid-based inter-media artist Guillermo Paneque, the exhibition runs from 13 May to 26 November in Venice, Italy.
