'Sustainable Thinking' extended until 16 January 2021

The Museo Salvatore Ferragamo in Florence has been reopened and the exhibition “Sustainable Thinking” has been extended until 16 January 2021.

"Sustainability" defines man's ability to "satisfy the needs of the present without compromising the possibility that future generations will be able to satisfy their own”. Pascale Marthine Tayou’s Poupées Pascale is part of the exhibition; these crystal sculptures are made from a multiplicity of materials, combining craftsmanship and industrial production, the rural and urban context and tradition and progress.

Second edition XXL Online: Zhanna Kadyrova

Zhanna Kadyrova presents her works at La 58° Biennale di Venezia “May You Live In Interesting Times”.

Get to know our artists’ biggest and best projects with exclusive content from Galleria Continua and the artists themselves. By entering into a large art installation, you enter into another world. 

The 2nd edition of Continua XXL Online presents Zhanna Kadyrova and her works “Market” 2017 – 2019 and “Second Hand” 2014 – 2019. Both are projects that have spanned a number of years; in this instance, we explore them in the context of the 58th Venice Biennale “May You Live In Interesting Times”.

“Market” saw the produce of a typical street market made from stone, cement and tiles displayed in the Arsenale section of the Biennale, provoking thought around the notion of art as a tradeable commodity. “Second Hand” held in the central pavilion of the show, is a work that according to its place and circumstance changes aesthetic. Kadyrova used tiles repurposed from a Venetian hotel to make her clothes and linens, some of which, in the typical Venetian style, were hung outside.
