We’re glad to announce that we’ve been invited to participate in exhibition “Trame – Copper Shapes in Contemporary Art, Design, Technology and Architecture” with our limited copper products.
Copper, interpreted in all its multiple forms and applications, is the main theme of Copper Crossings – Copper Shapes in Contemporary Art, Design, Technology and Architecturepresented at Triennale di Milano.
The concept of the exhibition is by Elena Tettamanti and is coproduced with Eight Art Project – a new company set up to produce projects in contemporary art and in design – together with Triennale di Milano, Triennale Design Museum and Istituto Italiano del Rame with the patronage of the European Copper Institute.
This is the first exhibition looking at copper from a different point of view thanks to an interdisciplinary approach represented with more than 250 pieces representative of sectors of the exhibition. An outstanding scientific support is given by Giampiero Bosoni, Ico Migliore and Francesca Olivini at Istituto Italiano del Rame together with a high profile scientific committee consisting of Giampiero Bosoni, Maurizio Decina, Fiorenzo Galli, Ico Migliore and Vicente Todolí.
Copper Crossings is a journey through works of art, design and architecture, applications in science and technology together with photos and videos where copper is the leit motiv.Different names find in this material a common ground to work according to their personal experiences exploiting in the most innovative ways the formal, structural and plastic qualities of copper.
The 30 works shown in the section devoted to contemporary art represent the most important post-war art movements, from Arte Povera to Minimal Art up until the latest artistic trends. In the design section more than 100 objects designed by the top names in the sector. Architecture is explored through 10 scale models representing the work of some of the greatest architects and finally a section dedicated to technology featuring applications on IT, medical equipments, energy conduction and transportation.
