Off season visitors (who usually have more time for taking in the city) should consider two unusual photography exhibits, one featuring the vision of a bright young French photographer, the other an intimate portrait of a beloved Venetian poet, recently deceased.
DAVID FARGE presents a series of astounding photographs capturing the icey motion of dancers frozen in time. The images were short during a performance of BUB — Bouncing Universe in Bulk — choreographed by Eric Arnal Burtschy. See them at the studio of glass designer Noberto Moretti until November 26:
In contrast, the exhibition that opens Friday, Nov. 18 at Palazzo Loredan is a intimate portrait of beloved Venetian poet ANDREA ZANZOTTO at 90, by Graziano Arici. It’s not a retrospective, but a “visit” with the poet, photographs taken at home and around town only a few months before his death.
Both exhibitions are free.
