On June 4th, Fondazione Prada opened its new exhibition at Cà Corner della Regina, the Venetian venue, curated by Germano Celant, “Art or Sound”.
The show explores the relationship between art and sound and the way it has developed from the 16th century to the present day, examining the iconic aspects of musical instruments, the role of the artist-musician, and the areas in which the visual arts and music have come together.
The exhibition comprises more than 180 artifacts—clocks and carillons, automata and musical machines, paintings and scores, sculptures and readymades, together with decorated, assembled, imaginary and silent musical instruments—and will occupy the two main floors of Ca’ Corner della Regina.
