“Andrea Branzi. La metropoli primitiva” at Nivola Museum

The show comprises many recently designed objects, projects, and videos, with a few works from earlier periods, under the rubric of “metropoli primitiva” (The Primitive Metropolis), a vision of the present urban situation, in which the new cognitive capacity of humanity transcends certain physical and cultural traditions to offer primordial freedom.

The Nivola Museum will hold the first exhibition in Sardinia of Andrea Branzi. “The exhibition – says Giuliana Altea, president of the Nivola foundation – inaugurates the 2016 museum program devoted to the exploration of the relationship among, art, handicraft and design: an intertwinement which is paramount in Nivola’s work as well as in Branzi’s artistic research”.
