VENICE DESIGN WEEK
7 – 15 October 2017

 

Venice Design Week (VDW) encompasses many events that take place in Venice from the 7th to the 15th of October 2017. Venice Design Week cooperates with Museums and many institutions in town to coordinate the week of design in Venice.
 Designers and companies from all over the world are invited to take part in exhibitions, competitions, and special events.

Visitors to the Venice Design Week can visit exhibitions of contemporary design and at the same time explore the hidden side of Venice, discovering how ancient objects were designed and decorated. The VDW team organizes unique visits both inside and outside museums. Venice Design Week was founded in 2010 with the goal of enriching the relationship between design, arts and crafts. For many centuries, Venice has been recognized as an important port where goods and ideas were exchanged with the east. Merchandise of all kinds arrived in Venice to be transported across Europe.

Many machines (and some bizarre ideas) were patented and made in Venice. October has become the month dedicated to design, giving locals and tourists alike the opportunity to visit the Venice Design Week and at the same time the Biennale of Art or Architecture. Exhibitions and events are spread out all over the city. The VDW map helps visitors discover all the exhibitions, museums, workshops, and artists’ studios, offering a thrilling combination of exploring visions of the future and diving into the past.

This year marks the eighth year of VDW, and the significant yearly increase in both investments and visitors has made it a landmark event organized just after the London Design Festival and before the Moscow Design Week.

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.
