Fondazione Prada to host ‘Art of Sound’ exhibition in Venice, Italy

Fondazione Prada will present the exhibition Art or Sound at its Venetian venue, the palace of Ca’ Corner della Regina. Curated by Germano Celant, the exhibition will run from June 7th to November 3rd, 2014. Conceived as an investigation of the past and our present, the purpose of Art or Sound is to analyze the development of a productive and complex dialogue.

The exhibit will highlight the relationship between art and sound, iconic aspects of the musical instrument, the role of the artist-musician, and the areas in which the visual arts and music have come together and blurred.The exhibition aims to emphasize the symmetrical and ambivalent link that exists between works of art and sound objects. Art or Sound will present musical instruments made by Michele Antonio Grandi, Giovanni Battista Cesarini, Alvin Lucier, John Cage, Robert Morris and many others.
