Vera Molnár: Icône 2020 at the 59th International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia —
Vera Molnár: Icône 2020. Collateral Event of the 59th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia
Curated by Francesca Franco
Vera Molnár: Icône 2020 is an exhibition centred on a new commission, Icône 2020, founded, produced and curated by Francesca Franco. This is Vera Molnár’s first ever glass sculpture in a career that spans over 80 years. Taking the new commission as a centre point, this exhibition explores the process that made this sculpture possible, bringing together preparatory sketches, original plotter drawings and documentation material that reveal the complexities behind the making of Icône 2020, encouraging new thinking about sculpture and the unimaginable ramifications of computational art.
Under the patronage of Accademia d’Ungheria in Roma, and organised by New Murano Galllery at Atelier Muranese with the support of Arts and Humanities Research Council UK, Leonardo/ISAST/OLATS, and the University of Exeter, Vera Molnár: Icône 2020 features a series of original artworks by Vera Molnár that look at the evolution of her original concept “order/disorder” and how this has materialised over the decades in her production, from the late 1960s up to the present time with this new collaboration, presented for the first time at the Collateral Event of the Biennale Arte 2022.
