'Art or Sound', curated by Germano Celant, explores the relationship between art and sound and the way it has developed from the 16th century to the present day, examining the iconic aspects of musical instruments, the role of the artist-musician, and the areas in which the visual arts and music have come together. The exhibition sets out to investigate the relationship of symmetry and ambivalence that exists between works of art and sound objects.
The exhibition comprises more than 180 artifacts—clocks and carillons, automata and musical machines, paintings and scores, sculptures and readymades, together with decorated, assembled, imaginary and silent musical instruments—and occupies the two main floors of Ca’ Corner della Regina, the Venetian venue of Fondazione Prada.
'Art or Sound' is open daily (10am - 6pm), until 3 November 2014. Closed on Tuesdays.
