MacArthur “Genius Award” recipient Fred Wilson’s first major solo exhibition in New York City since 2006 features Sala Longhi, a room-sized installation comprised of twenty-seven paintings made of black Murano glass, which reference Pietro Longhi’s 18th-century painting cycle in the “Sala Longhi” in the Palazzo ca’ Rezzonico in Venice. Wilson’s Sala Longhi was installed in Glasstress during the 2011 Venice Biennale. This is the first time that it will be shown in the United States.
