In Milano Art Week for miart – international modern and contemporary art fair program – and Milano Design Week, MARS presents “BelVedere”, an international video art screening with a site-specific installation by Alberto Mugnaini, that explores the boundary between contemporary art and design.
“BelVedere” is a new format to present a video art screening. MARS is a small space in a multiethnic neighborhood, an underground scenario that transfigures itself in an imaginary place. BelVedere is a classical metaphor related to landscape starting from the “Belvidere”, a Villa suburbana erected by Innocenzo VIII and designed by the architect Antonio del Pollaiolo as a loggia to admire the panorama of Rome.
In this case MARS becomes a place of possibility, a privileged observatory, a projection of new perspectives beyond the space.
The “BelVedere” selection curated by Fabio Carnaghi aims to combine an international video art screening and an innovative curatorial interpretation in the form of narrative performance, with a site-specific installation by Alberto Mugnaini.
“BelVedere” is a cultural opportunity that opens the MARS box up to a visionary language and transforming the space in a magic lantern emanating new light on a complex collage-city.
