06/03/2019

Theke provides the staging of this prestigious exhibition dedicated to a selection of paintings by the artist Valeria Costa (1912-2003) and exhibited from February 15, 2019 at the suggestive location of “Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo”, Venice.

The exhibition focuses on the violent use of color and pictorial material, privileging the works from which emerges the suffering of women in all its forms; birth, maternity, family, death, war, fear, defense, are the key words that inspire this selection of paintings that will build a sort of Dante’s feminine path, in dialogue with the large sketch depicting the Paradise by Jacopo Tintoretto (c. 1588) in which the coronation of Mary in heaven, belonging to the IRE collections, is celebrated.
