Jiří Georg Dokoupil's 'Venetian Bubbles'

Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana of Museo Correr in Venice | June 22 – August 18, 2024

[Museum Exhibition] Jiří Georg Dokoupil's solo exhibition in Venice, 'Venetian Bubbles' opens on June 22 at the Sale Monumentali of the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana. Curated by Reiner Opoku and supported by the Association for Art in Public, the show will be on view until August 18, 2024.

The exhibition will mark the unveiling of eight of Dokoupil's first-ever large sculptural works in glass, alongside seven paintings and a series of works on paper. Set in a space adorned by historical Renaissance painters like Veronese, Titian and Tintoretto, this contemporary intervention reflects the artist’s liberated exploration of materials and techniques, "revealing new approaches to glassmaking with freedom, play and humor, while capturing the ephemerality of existence".
