NPAA 2021 JURIED BIENNIAL
Erie Art Museum
Friday, October 1st - Wednesday, December 22nd, 2021
Paolo Ventura was born in Milan in 1968. His work has been exhibited in museums and private galleries worldwide, including the Italian Pavilion of the 2011 Venice Biennale. He is a visual storyteller, constructing narrative through elaborate sets he designs, builds and photographs, often inserting himself and his loved ones as the main characters. A masterful illusionist, his work floats in surreal worlds of historical landscape and invented memories of times past that seem familiar to us yet are not.
