(Venice, IT) – As there are no forests in Venice, the Venetian dialect phrase for “foreigner” is “foresti” or “someone from the forest”. I Foresti, a group exhibition at Castello 925, plays on that vernacular expression as these American artists are not only foreigners to Venice but are inspired by the materials and rich textures of the forest.

I Foresti explores the meanings of the Venetian phrase “foresti” as surveyors of the sensory experience of nature (Weinstein and Leith), or purveyors of the rhythms of its hidden life forms (McClintock) or a cartographer of the foreigner’s journey (Young). Together, these artists convey the experience of the forest and the foreigner as inspiration, destination and refuge to the city of Venice.
