In Conversation

BARBARA DE VIVI with Angela Brisotto, Victoria Stephanie Uzumyemezoglu, Sara Antoniolli, and Olga Lepri

It makes such a contrast to leave the comfort of the warm sun to explore the grotto-like space where De Vivi, a Venetian emergent artist, colourfully layers mythology, ancient iconography, and contemporary imagery within her paintings.
