Edmund de Waal: psalm is a two-part exhibition in Venice. The first part takes place at the Scuola Canton, a sixteenth-century synagogue under the aegis of Museo Ebraico, and includes new installations of porcelain, marble, and gold that reflect the literary and musical heritage of the place. The second part is at the Ateneo Veneto, where Edmund de Waal has constructed a small library within the main space that houses two thousand books written by exiled authors from Ovid’s time to the present day.

breath

Ivorypress, Madrid

Breath is an invitation for Edmund de Waal to work across Ivorypress’s three different spaces: the publishing house, the exhibition space, and the bookshop. At the heart of this project is an artist’s book, published by Ivorypress. To accompany the volume, de Waal has made a series of seventeen new works; alongside these is a reading room, housing a selection of one hundred books, inviting visitors to sit down and read.

Giorgio Morandi

April 7–October 1, 2017
Artipelag, Gustavsberg, Sweden
artipelag.se

In this exhibition, contemporary British ceramicist and author Edmund de Waal meets renowned Italian painter Giorgio Morandi, whose oeuvre largely consists of sensual still-life paintings of pottery. However, it’s not ceramics that unites these two artists but rather the encouragement of mindful viewing and contemplation. Bo Nilsson has curated the exhibition in collaboration with de Waal.
