Magazzino Italian Art hosts interview and Q + A Melissa McGill and journalist Julia Felsenthal

On May 9, 2020 Magazzino Italian Art hosted an Instagram Live session with artist Melissa McGill and journalist Julia Felsenthal, in celebration of the release of Giovanni Pellegrini’s film “Melissa McGill: Red Regatta.” The pair discussed the artist’s public art project called ‘Red Regatta,’ which activated Venice’s lagoon and canals with large-scale regattas of traditional vela al terzo sailboats hoisted with hand-painted red sails from May–September 2019. Presented in collaboration with Associazione Vela al Terzo, curated by Chiara Spangaro, with project manager Marcella Ferrari, the project was co-organized by Magazzino Italian Art, with support from Mazzoleni. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In Melissa McGill’s ‘Red Regatta’ attention was drawn to the delicate and liminal relationship between Venice’s built and natural environments, between land and sea, and between humanity and nature itself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
