Jannis Kounellis, a retrospective at the Fondazione Prada in Venice

Until 24 November 2019, the Fondazione Prada in Venice presents “Jannis Kounellis”, the major retrospective dedicated to the artist following his death in 2017.
Curated by Germano Celant and developed in collaboration with Archivio Kounellis, the project brings together more 60 works from 1959 to 2015, from both Italian and international museums, as well as from important private collections both in Italy and abroad.
The exhibition explores the artistic and exhibition history of Jannis Kounellis (Piraeus 1936 – Rome 2017), establishing a dialogue between his works and the eighteenth-century spaces of Ca’ Corner della Regina.
