Heavy Metal
How copper changed the world. The special exhibition in the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology traces the history of copper. On display are new archaeological finds from the Alpine region and important authentic artefacts from the surrounding area.
December, 7 - February, 11 The variational status
The exhibition is developed around a nucleus of works that articulate the complexity of Italo Zuffi's investigations in the area of performance from the beginning of his career, with particular attention to his relationship with sculpture. Even though the works in the exhibition do not amount to an actual live performance, the presence of the body is affirmed in the form of memory, potential and record.
Exhibition in the Gallery Museum.
