“Art or Sound” at Fondazione Prada curated by Germano Celant
The Fondazione Prada presents “Art or Sound”, a rich exhibition curated by Germano Celant, at Ca’ Corner della Regina in Venice and featuring works by Joseph Beuys, Janet Cardiff, Martin Creed, Tarek Atoui, Pedro Reyes etc. Conceived as an investigation of past and present times, “Art or Sound” explores the relationship between art and sound and the way it has developed from the 16th century to the present day. The exhibition sets out to investigate the relationship of symmetry and ambivalence that exists between works of art and sound objects. The intention is to offer a reinterpretation of the musical instrument that turns into a sculptural-visual entity and of the artworks that produce sound, in a continual encroachment and inversion of fields.
