See below the current list of the suggested events in Giudecca.
ART@Hilton is a series of art exhibitions at the Hilton Molino Stucky Venice and
curated by Giudecca 795 Art Gallery, which presents projects and emerging artists of great
interest and whose work has a special connection to Venice.
The programme includes six exhibitions that will take place during 2013, timed to invite
guests arriving at the Hilton Molino Stucky to a "full immersion" in the atmosphere of
today’s Venice, also in proximity to great events such as Carnival, the Art Biennale and the
Venice Film Festival.
These particular perspectives are those by artists who have known Venice initially as
travelers, and ended up choosing the city as their place of the heart and work, and making
it a focal point in their artistic and personal growth.
The exhibition traces a path to an adventure through the present and in history, starting
with the festive and surreal vision of Oliviero Dall'Asta, almost a Venetian travel diary laid
on the canvas, the wonder of a day spent walking in the city’s long imagined calli.
An interesting young artist with an amazing story: Neil Harbisson is back to Venice. On the occasion of the Art Night Venezia, at the Giudecca 795 Art Gallery, Neil Harbisson presents the
project CYBER VENEZIA, aiming to make a "sound map" of the
colors of Venice, starting with Burano.
On 23rd June 2012 Giudecca 795 hosted a first
meeting with the artist and a performance; then, the project has been illustrated at Palazzo Loredan (Campo S.
Stefano 2945 near Accademia) with a video and interactive
performance between sound, color and dance. A great event in Giudecca.
The first phase of the ongoing project for Burano has been hosted in Giudecca for the whole length of the Venice Architecture Biennale.
Harbisson is an artist and musician, born in Belfast in 1982, whose colour blindness allows him to
see only shades of gray. He is the first person ever to wear an Eyeborg (a cybernetic eye, developed in collaboration with a researcher from the University of Barcelona) that "translates" colours into sounds and vice versa. An exciting project, which Harbisson presented successfully around the world: the artist creates "sound portraits" of faces, and "Sonochromatics", corresponding to musical scores in colour. In a word, it is cyber-art, which we presented in Venice last year during the Visual Arts Biennale.
Now he launches Cyber Venezia, a project whose first chapter is The Sound of Burano: that is, he began to explore the
colourful houses on the island of Burano, extracting the sounds “produced” by their colors.
