If I had to choose only one name to represent the Italian genius of the twentieth century, I would choose Bruno Munari (1907-1998). A futurist in the 30’s, artist, graphic and industrial designer, star of the publishing world, almost two decades after his death Munari is still a treasure trove of gems to be discovered, evidences of a creative talent applied equally to a work of art or a lamp (such as the famous Falkland, designed by Munari in 1964).
Light itself is a protagonist in the installation “Illusioni Luminose”, curated by Miroslava Hajek and hosted by La Fabbrica del Vedere in Venice. A series of works made of different materials on slides glass and projected with polarized light, a technique that Munari developed in the 50s and that in our Digital Age reminds us the fascinating possibilities of analog media. The exhibition will be open until December 5.
