Jannis Kounellis
curated by Germano Celant
Fondazione Prada – Ca’ Corner della Regina, Venice
11 May – 24 November 2019
In the year of 58th Biennale in Venice, Fondazione Prada dedicates to Jannis Kounellis the first major retrospective following the artist’s death in 2017. The exhibition, curated by Germano Celant and developed in collaboration with the Kounellis Archive, brings together more than 60 works from 1959 to 2015, establishing a dialogue with the eighteenth-century spaces of Ca’ Corner della Regina. Among the exhibited materials, there are also archive documents, including posters, invitations, photographs and the video from the performance “Die Hamletmaschine by Heiner Muller” by Theodoros Terzopoulos with Jannis Kounellis’s scene held at Teatro Piccolo, Milan on 28 December, 2015. That performance was curated by Annamaria Maggi and Alexandra Papadopoulos and was organized by Galleria Fumagalli.
