n the occasion of the second centenary of the artist's death, Mart is celebrating the legacy of one of the most important sculptors of all time - Antonio Canova (1757 - 1822). This large exhibition explores the modern relevance of his work in contemporary languages, from photography to more recent sculptural work, highlighting links, dialogues, continuity and juxtapositions.
There are 150 works on show ranging from the 19th century to our own day including masterpieces by Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, Costantin Brancusi, Mimmo Jodice, Robert Mapplethorpe, Helmut Newton, Irving Penn, Edward Weston, Joel-Peter Witkin.
