Fondazione Prada presents Jannis Kounellis, curated by Germano Celant, the first major retrospective dedicated to the artist after his death in 2017. The exhibition takes place in the palace of Ca ‘Corner della Regina, the Venetian headquarters of the foundation, until November 24, 2019 .
The project, developed in collaboration with the Kounellis Archive, brings together more than 60 works from 1959 to 2015, from Italian and international institutions and museums, such as Tate Modern (London), Center Pompidou – Musée National d’Art Moderne (Paris) , Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen (Rotterdam), Walker Art Center (Minneapolis) and Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art (Turin), and from important private collections in Italy and abroad. The exhibition reconstructs the artistic and exhibition history of Kounellis (Piraeus 1936 – Rome 2017), highlighting the fundamental developments of his poetry and trying to establish a dialogue between the eighteenth-century works and spaces of Ca ’Corner della Regina.
The retrospective is completed by the presentation on the ground floor of documents such as films, catalogs, invitations, posters and archive photographs that testify to the exhibition history of Kounellis and a focus on his theatrical projects.
