Venice in the Key of Green

Nicolás García Uriburu and the Coloration of the Grand Canal

Past

More information

This exhibition constitutes the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes’ commemoration of Nicolás García Uriburu’s intervention from June of 1968 of dying the waters of the Grand Canal in Venice green during the Biennial—and without the organizers’ knowledge—which signified an unprecedented aesthetic event in contemporary art, as a reflection not only on ecological catastrophe, but also on the role of art and how it configures the world.
