Video pioneer Fabrizio Plessi turns 80

Fabrizio Plessi. L'età dell'oro – The golden age


The Galleria Internazionale d’Arte Moderna – Ca’ Pesaro will celebrate Fabrizio Plessi's 80th birthday with an exhibition of his great historical installations and new site-specific works.


The exhibition will also be a great tribute to Venice by the artist, inspired by the theme of gold, a highly symbolic material and one closely linked to the city. Gold shaped and declined in various forms can repeatedly be discovered in the extraordinary artistic work of Fabrizio Plessi through the decades, up to the great creations of recent years.


The Ca’ Pesaro exhibition will be joined by the windows of the Museo Correr in Piazza San Marco, in which digital rivers of gold will flow to face the sumptuous mosaics of the Basilica.
