Enzo Mari curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist with Francesca Giacomelli

The exhibition examines over 60 years of activity of one of Italy’s greatest masters and theorists of design.

Triennale di Milano, Viale Emilio Alemagna, 6, Milan, Italy

The exhibition brings together a series of contributions from international artists and designers such as Adelita Husni-Bey, Tacita Dean, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Mimmo Jodice, Dozie Kanu, Adrian Paci, Barbara Stauffacher Solomon, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Danh Vō, Nanda Vigo, and Virgil Abloh who have been invited to pay tribute to Mari with site-specific installations and new, specially commissioned works.

One contribution in particular is that of Nanda Vigo, whose work, made specially for the exhibition shortly before her death and never shown previously, uses light to reinterpret 16 animali and 16 pesci, two of Mari’s most famous works. At the same time, nineteen Research Platforms, specially created for the Triennale exhibition, give insights into the individual projects that have given rise to the key themes of Mari’s artistic vision and practice. Additional features include a series of video interviews by Hans Ulrich Obrist that illustrate Mari’s ethical and theoretical thought, together with his extraordinary design skills with which he has given shape to the essential.
