Artempo


A model of female anatomy by an anonymous artist. David Yoder for the New York Times

Artempo: Where Time Becomes Art,” a new exhibit, recently opened at the Palazzo Fortuny in Venice. Rather than examine a specific artist or historical era, Artempo includes objects and works of art spanning centuries and groups them conceptually. The exhibit’s website includes a wealth of information… in case you can’t make it to Venice before October.

“It examines the relationship between art, time, and the power of display representing a breadth of cultures and periods and featuring over 300 objects ranging from rare archaeological materials to contemporary installation.”

Read a review by Roberta Smith of the New York Times. Be sure to check out the exhibit slide show, too.
