Coinciding with the 57th Venice Biennale, the Museo di Palazzo Grimani presents a show featuring a series of painted PVC panels made for the occasion by Beverly Barkat for the spaces of this magnificent building.


“The inspiration for Evocative Surfaces came from Palazzo Grimani and its energy,” says the artist from Jerusalem. “I want my pieces to be something more than works on display… they should create a true dialogue between antique and contemporary, architectural space and art.”


In the main hall of the Palazzo, twelve monumental paintings on semi-transparent PVC panels hang from the wooden ceiling beams. Like sails, the paintings are moved by the breeze and by the movements of viewers.
