“From Kandinsky to Botero. All in a Thread” in Venice: from tapestry to film!Exhibition in Venice now

The exhibition From Kandinsky to Botero in Venice combines various genres and techniques. The exhibition experience does not stop at the tapestries, and will make you dive into the sea through the screening of images from the film “The Legend of 1900”, also named “The Legend of the Pianist on the Ocean”. You may wonder what this film has to do with the exhibition. Let us tell you more about it through the history of the fine weaving of the Asti school. The expert, delicate hands of the artists and long hours of work led to the elegant weaving that can be admired at Palazzo Zaguri. But where were these tapestries before? Some of these masterpieces adorned the elegant salons of the transatlantic liners of the Italian fleet after the war. During the transoceanic voyages of these ships it was therefore possible to admire the refinement and details of these splendid pieces. The images from The Legend Of The Pianist On The Ocean are reminiscent of these past glories. They may make you wonder about the splendid, fairytale-like parties that took place during these long trips. Visitors will enjoy the exhibition, mixing audiovisual and textile medium to the colours on canvas!
