For miart 2016, the Fondazione Nicola Trussardi and miart are presenting Sarah Lucas: Innamemorabiliamumbum, a special project by renowned British artist Sarah Lucas, curated by Massimiliano Gioni and Vincenzo de Bellis, conceived for the extraordinary setting of the AlbergoDiurno Venezia baths and produced in collaboration with FAI – Fondo Ambiente Italiano and the City of Milan.
On Friday, April 8, Saturday, April 9 and Sunday, April 10, during the twenty-first edition of Milan’s modern and contemporary art fair, the Fondazione Nicola Trussardi and miart, in partnership with FAI and the City of Milan, have invited the artist Sarah Lucas to create a project specifically conceived for the magnificent spaces of the underground baths designed in the early 1920s by architect Piero Portaluppi, which have been closed to the public since 2006 and were recently reopened for a few days through the initiative of FAI and FAI Delegation in Milan. This temple of beauty and personal care will be brought to life by sculptures, installations, sound works and other projects, for three days of exhibitions, performances and live happenings centered on the theme of the body, its depiction, its history, and the stereotypes in which it is frequently cloaked. Sarah Lucas will create a site-specific work designed for the Albergo Diurno Venezia, which will also feature sound installations and performances on Saturday, April 9 and Sunday, April 10.
