Jim Dine – Dog on the Forge presents around 50 works from the artist. Paintings, drawings, bronze and wood sculptures, as well as an impressive outdoor installation of large-scale bronze sculptures. The exhibition debuts monumental and site-specific works conceived specifically for the Biennale Arte 2024. Never before exhibited paintings and sculptures will be arranged in dialogue with each other and with artworks spanning from the ‘80s through today. Curator Gerhard Steidl drew inspiration from Dine’s relentless odysseys between the United States and Europe, as well as his lifetime dedication to the concept of visual, cultural, and linguistic hybridization.
