The Event Pavilion presents “Greetings from Venice“, a site-specific installation from the Italian artist Elisabetta Di Maggio, curated by Chiara Bertola. After the great public acclaim achieved by the work of Fabrizio Plessi Under Water and by the installation Waterbones by Loris Cecchini, the area devoted to different cultural events — located in the new lifestyle department store of DFS in the heart of Venezia — is back to contemporary art with an evocative and intimate installation, where the suggestive and hypnotic beauty of the artist’s manual work intertwines with food for thought about time and the nature of relationships.
With this third exhibition, the DFS group confirms its will to bring the T Fondaco dei Tedeschi back to its old vocation of a place where culture, trade, secular traditions and contemporaneity, local and international visitors, all converge and intertwine.
The space reinterpreted by the artis, will continue to host the cultural activities promoted by the T Fondaco dei Tedeschi: concerts, literary meetings, contemporary dance performances and video screenings, organized in collaboration with the cultural institutions of Venice.
