Prima Materia Exhibition


Prima Materia has opened in honor of the 55th Venetian Biennale. Starting from May 30th, you will have the possibility of seeing in Punta della Dogana this exhibition arranged by Caroline Bourgeois and Michael Govan. The former monumental harbor acts as permanent headquarters for the François Pinault collection after a project where it was redeveloped by the François Pinault Foundation.

The exhibition opens with three installations by Lizzie Fitch & Ryan Trecartin – Public Cop, Porch Limit and Local Dorck. Images of people locked in a room will be constantly shown on a huge screen. It’s a way to underline the influence of contemporary art both in the public and the private sphere; from this concept we get to the name given to the exhibition.

You will get to see this and 80 other artworks realized between 1960 up to today, in a costant dialogue between the most important cultural movements.
