Dancing with Myself

Punta della Dogana, Venice

8 Apr - 16 Dec 2018

This exhibition considers the importance of the artist’s role as actor and material of their own creations, from the 1970s to today. The exhibition brings together a great range of artistic practices and languages (photography, video, painting, sculpture, installation), cultures, geographic origins, generations and experiences, to establish a tension between extremely different artistic approaches. The exhibition revolves around four themes – Melancholia, Identity Games, Political Autobiographies, and Raw Material – with 32 artists on view, including Marcel Bascoulard, Marcel Broodthaers, Damien Hirst and Giulio Paolini. Find out more about ‘Dancing with Myself’ from the Punta della Dogana’s website.
