ART ATTACK: Brioni is supporting a contemporary and performance art installation inside Milan’s San Paolo Converso, a former church built in the 16th century.

Called “Angelic Sisters,” the exhibition — which kicked off over the weekend and will remain in place for the duration of Expo 2015 — is an initiative of the 186f Kepler art institute and features work by John Armleder, Mai-Thu Perre, Anne Imhof, Stefan Tcherepnin and Genesis P-Orridge, who will perform on select dates from May to September.

Armleder, for instance, unveiled a laser project that beams geometric shapes over the church’s numerous frescoes, while Tcherepnin fixed his “Cloud Holders” sculpture to the ceiling and relied on P-Orridge for sound effects.

Jeanne Graff, founder of 186f Kepler, has also written a narrative guide to the exhibit, available in book form for visitors to the church.
