The Gallerie dell’Accademia di Venezia is delighted to announce that Anish Kapoor will be the first British artist to be honoured with a major exhibition at the museum.

The exhibition, postponed from 2021 because of the pandemic, will be presented during the Venice International Art Biennale in 2022, opening on 20 April and running until 9 October 2022.

The curator is art historian Taco Dibbits, General Director of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

The exhibition will be a comprehensive retrospective presenting key moments in Kapoor’s career and exploring the development of his unique visual language. For the first time, ground-breaking new works, created using carbon nanotechnology, will be shown.

These new works further develop the language of Kapoor’s seminal sculptures, which explore the condition of what he has termed the ‘non-object’ - works that investigate the liminal space occupied by an object, between physical presence and immateriality, something that is present but absent, empty yet full.
