Francesco Vezzoli: Museo Museion

Museion

30 Jan 201605 May 2016

Museion’s 2016 programme opens with a double exhibition. Francesco Vezzoli, one of the most internationally renowned Italian artists, is curating an exhibition on the Museion collection as guest curator, and presenting, as an artist, the first retrospective of his sculptural work. Entitled “Museo Museion”, the double show is set to take over the whole of the Bolzano venue.

It opens with an imposing wallpaper based on a painting by Giovanni Paolo Pannini, which immerses the ground floor of Museion in the atmosphere of an eighteenth-century picture gallery.

Short-circuiting the history of art, he reinterprets part of the Museion collection by making it interface with masterpieces from Western art history kept in major European and American museums.
