Francesco Vezzoli will be Museion’s guest curator for 2016
Francesco Vezzoli will be Museion’s guest curator for 2016. The artist will inaugurate the the new season on the 29th January with a double event: as guest curator, presenting an exhibition of the Museion collection, and as artist, with the first retrospective of his sculptural work. Both exhibitions are entitled “Museo Museion” and will tak place in the whole Museum.
In Bolzano, in the role of curator, the artist is presenting the first themed exhibition of the Museion collection, linking it up to historical masterpieces. By relating the collection to the past, Vezzoli forges new, multiple levels of interpretation of the works and reflects on the explicit and hidden connections in art and the interpretative frameworks ingrained in its system
Vezzoli is the fourth guest curator at Museion: every year an external curator is invited to present a thematic exhibition.
