ART, DESIGN AND CREATIVITY
ALCANTARA PRESENTS "NINE JOURNEYS THROUGH TIME. ALCANTARA AND ART IN THE APARTMENT OF THE PRINCE"
Curated by Davide Quadrio and Massimo Torrigiani, the exhibition is the third episode in a cycle of shows, which since 2016 explore the surprising qualities of Alcantara® as a material for artistic creation, transforming the spaces of the Apartment of the Prince into gateways onto the ‘elsewhere’ realms of art.
“Nine Journeys Through Time. Alcantara and Art in the Apartment of the Prince” is an exhibition promoted and produced by the Municipality of Milan – Culture, Palazzo Reale (Royal Palace) and Alcantara, conceived especially for the rooms of the Apartment of the Prince, and open to the public from 5 April to 13 May, curated by Davide Quadrio and Massimo Torrigiani.
With this new project, the Company continues its original research and development activities, opening up once again to both established and emerging artists from various fields of contemporary creativity, inviting them to get to grips with original, complex and unique works of art.
In “Nine Journeys Through Time”, which offers an exceptional combination of talents, 10 artistic approaches are brought together through 9 projects (Esther Stocker and Iris van Herpen have come up with a joint project) in a range of media. From the transfiguration of painting to fashion, from digital design to music, they all draw inspiration from the specifics of a unique material: Alcantara.
The 10 artists are: Aaajiao, Andrea Anastasio, Caterina Barbieri, Krijn de Koning, Li Shurui, Chiharu Shiota, Esther Stocker and Iris van Herpen, Zeitguised, Zimoun.
