Forward Returns 21th April 2018 

Palazzo Donà dalle Rose opening, Cannaregio 5101 | Venice | Forward Returns a special Dionysian journey between the past and the present:  from Pop Art’s figurehead Andy Warhol to the ancient Dancing Satyr of Mazara del Vallo.* 

This special evening will encapsulate a celebration of cultural heritage and contemporary practice, including a display of artworks, a benefit auction, and a cocktail and dinner in the historic setting of Palazzo Donà dalle Rose. The event will also launch BIAS – Biennial of Sacred Arts and WISH – World International Sicilian Heritage’s upcoming projects, and in particular will promote the creation of a Bedouin children’s hospital at Nuweiba,  in the Sinai desert, Egypt. 

We invite you to join us for this exclusive event and to help by supporting the initiation of this important humanitarian project.  In the spirit of the ancient celebrations of the satyr: we welcome you to a unique gathering assembled together in an effort to draw attention to finding ways to overcome today’s poverty and strife.  

*A symbol of revelry and wild, hedonistic abandon in classical times, satyrs formed part of the raucous entourage of Dionysus, the Greek god of wine, who was associated simultaneously with divine bliss and brutal rage. According to Greek mythology, the satyr, head back in ecstasy, may have held a Kantharos (cup of wine) in one hand, with a panther’s skin slung over his arm, and a staff in the other; tipped with a pine cone and twined with ivy.
