A Life of Seduction: Venice in the 1700s conjures one of Italy’s most fabled destinations: a gloriously theatrical setting for festivals, balls, processions and Carnival revelry. Opening February 16, just twelve days before Mardi Gras 2017, the NOMA exhibition is especially timely for New Orleans art lovers and pleasure seekers with a taste for dramatic cultural displays. A Life of Seduction immerses visitors in the spectacle of 18th century Venice: the era of Casanova, Vivaldi, Tiepolo, and countless others who spread Venetian taste and style throughout the world.
The exhibition continues through May 21 with a rich array of lectures, films and festivities.
