Coinciding with the opening of the Venice Film Festival, renowned Italian artist Fabrizio Plessi has presented The Golden Age, a new video installation at Museo Correr in the famous Piazza San Marco, which you can visit until November 15th. As a prologue to his major upcoming retrospective, opening this fall at the Galleria Internazionale d’Arte Moderna Ca’ Pesaro, the piece serves as a sneak peek into the work of the 80-year-old pioneering video artist.

Sponsored by the House of Dior, the exhibition is testament to how the French Maison is constantly supportive of artistic events, especially in Italy, the home country of its Creative Director, Maria Grazia Chiuri. In L’età dell’oro, Plessi presents “spectacular, luminous and sonorous golden waterfalls without origin or end, a powerful and eye-catching magmatic loop” that represents “a suspended and circular time that envelops Venice without nostalgia but with a concrete sense of the present.” Referencing the city’s famous indoratore (gilder), the video artwork is another love letter from the artist to the city where he’s been living for the past years and that has also seen him rise to the most international level – he’s participated in various editions of the Venice Biennale since 1970.
