Pirelli HangarBicocca presents Cildo Meireles: Installations , the first exhibition in Italy devoted to one of the most important artists on the international scene, whose multi-sensory works inspire intense involvement of the public. Curated by Vicente Todolí, the solo display includes large installations made from 1970 to the present day.
The Pirelli HangarBicocca show winds its way through twelve works – eleven very large installations and one minuscule sculpture. It starts with a 9 mm cube made of sacred wood and ends with a pier that stretches out over a sea of seventeen thousand books. Partly co-produced with the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Madrid, Spain) and the Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Serralves (Porto, Portugal), the solo exhibition of works by Cildo Meireles is a unique opportunity to come to grips with the lyrical vision of this extraordinary connoisseur of artistic languages, who gives us a view of a very diverse, always unpredictable world.
