Milan – Largo Isarco
On a recent trip, I visited the Fondazione Prada venue in Southern Milan which spans over 19,000 squared meters. It was truly a mind blowing experience, as the art was all so perceptual and experimental. Some a bit difficult to truly comprehend, but none the less it was an explosion on the visual senses.
Not only is the art inside the various buildings incredible, but the actual buildings are stunning. Located in an area that houses a large amount of warehouses, this art venue was revamped into gems. Literally though, considering one of the buildings is painted in gold. The contrast to the hyper modern, concrete building is quite the visual.
All the art is astounding, with several of the pieces on display taking on nudity and political messages. There was also an incredibly dark and immersive room, featuring sand on the floor and several smashed up cars, with bright spotlights. Quickly learned suede boots and sand don’t go together, so it was onto the next art instalment for me.
