Melissa McGill: In Venice

This is the artist’s first solo exhibition with Mazzoleni London. Following her highly acclaimed Venice-based public art project Red Regatta, 2019, the exhibition presents related artworks in a wide range of materials. It features hand-painted photographic renderings, sculptural sound-works, works with sailcloth and paper, photographs, and a new series of watercolour studies of the Venetian Lagoon. In Venice is open to the public until 18 September 2021.
Red Regatta was an unprecedented series of four large-scale site-specific performances in Venice’s waterways between May and September 2019, presented in parallel with the 58th Venice Biennale: 52 traditional vela al terzo boats sailed in choreographed regattas, each with sails hand-painted in distinct shades of red. The project was a collaboration with Associazione Vela al Terzo Venezia, curated by Chiara Spangaro, with project management by Marcella Ferrari, co-organised by Magazzino Italian Art Foundation, with support from Mazzoleni.
