Travellers will be able to add even more culture to their tours of Venice this summer by paying a visit to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection to see an exhibition of modern sculpture.
Robert Rauschenberg: Gluts will be open at the prestigious art gallery in the Dorsoduro area of Venice from May 30th to September 20th.
The exhibition will feature approximately 40 sculptures known as Gluts that Rauschenberg, a prominent American artist, created between the years of 1986 and 1995.
To construct the wall reliefs and free-standing sculptures, Rauschenberg assembled various pieces of metal that he had collected, such as petrol station signs, car components and industrial parts.
The artist’s Gluts period was one of the latter stages of a career that had previously seen him interested in technology-based art and the use of materials including cardboard, paper and fabric.
Art lovers planning Venice tours this year will also be able to visit the Peggy Guggenheim Collection to see a display of futurist art that includes pieces by Umberto Boccioni, Giacomo Balla and others.
