DAVID CASS and STEPHEN KAVANAGH: Quest’Arno! Quest’Arno!

March 9 – April 10, 2015

QuestArnoEarlier this month, the exhibition Quest’Arno! Quest’Arno! by Scottish artists David Cass and Stephen Kavanagh opened in the SACI Gallery.

This exhibition includes a series of paintings, sculptural work & drawings that explore the events of those days in early November 1966 when Florence experienced the Flood. The artworks imagine & exaggerate scenes of inundation and destruction: the great Florence flood of November 1966. This series of studies by David Cass is as much an attempt to introduce a new element into his practice as they are explorative responses to the history of this catastrophe. Stephen Kavanagh’s sculptural works use experimental materials that explore place and what happens to things when they endure time and weather, as in this case, a major flood. The exhibition can be visited through April 10. Below are some photos from the opening night.
