The Fondazione dell’Albero d’Oro will present a new exhibition of work by Mexican artist Bosco Sodi from April 23–November 27 as one of 31 official collateral events in the 59th International Biennale Arte 2022.

Located on the Grand Canal in the center of Venice, Bosco Sodi a Palazzo Vendramin Grimani. What Goes Around Comes Around is curated by Daniela Ferretti and Dakin Hart and presents several new works created for the occasion in residency at the Palazzo. Drawing on the city's unique history as a dynamic hub for cultural and commercial exchanges between Europe, Asia, and the rest of the world, the exhibition will include an installation of over 195 small-scale clay spheres moulded from the soil of Oaxaca, Mexico.

Sodi is celebrated internationally for his use of raw, natural materials in large-scale textured paintings and sculpture that brim with emotive power. The essential simplicity of his materials and the vivid pigments he sources from around the globe are the focus of his process-based exploration of the creative gesture. Sodi has described his creative process as a “controlled chaos” that makes “something that is completely unrepeatable.”
