The Trinity is an exhibition that presents the art of Francesco Vezzoli to the public in three different museums: MAXXI, MoMA PS1 in New York and MOCA in Los Angeles.
Till the 24th of November the Roman museum exhibits Vezzoli’s artworks in the form of petit-point embroidery, videos, photographs or sculptures: works born from fragments of art house cinema, from Hollywood films and television productions, or from the history of art, or fashion and of politics. They come from the world of culture, both “high” and “low”. Inspired by themes from the popular imagination, Vezzoli adopts mass-media mechanisms and, using a complex web of linguistic codes, exposes their processes and mechanisms, and the logic behind them. With over ninety works, some exhibited for the first time, “Galleria Vezzoli” exposes Vezzoli’s artistic career, from the early 1995 embroidered to the tapestries, from photographs and videos up to the last marble sculptures.

Enjoy Quality Milano‘s creations are thought with love for those who recognize the value of a comfortable, well done and beautiful bag.
Since October 11th till 18th l’Opificio’s Design Section will be dedicated to Enjoy Quality Milano.
Eva Berendes, German artist born in 1974, uses the fabric to investigate all the possible relations between textile, the colorful shapes that compose it and the exhibition space.
Her works are not simple installations, are presences that light up the exhibition area: they constitute with the space a kind of silent dialogue. Very often his works are spectacular curtains consisting of large graphic compositions which slowly move with the visitors’ movements. They are huge pieces of fabric, assembled like a colorful puzzle, which become real mobile architectures: extremely simply works but with a very strong visual impact and with a mysterious and fascinating soul. Even if her works have minimal aesthetic next to Mondrian’s word, at every glace Berendes’ artwork reveals a new meaning.
