Fondazione Prada will hold its first performance art project this fall.
Called “Atlas of Gesture,” the performance will be held at the art institution’s Milanese headquarters from Sept. 18 to Oct. 3.
Conceived by dancer and choreographer Virgilio Sieni, who is also the director of Venice Biennale’s dance section, the project will involve both professional and amateur dancers who will perform on the two levels of the site’s Podium area. The dancers will interact with the statues of the “Serial Classic” exhibition, which currently occupies the space, in order to create a contrast between the dynamic dancing bodies and the static nature of the sculptures.
“Atlas of Gesture” will include five different parts, called Origin, Ritual, Announcement, Gravity and Nudity.
