In less than one month, the Fondazione Prada in Milan will present to the public a project of the Brussels-based group Rotor. The exhibition opens on occasion of the Salone del Mobile, the international design fair held in Milan (12-17 april 2011). Rotor is a collective of six members, among whom Lionel Devlieger, currently visiting professor at this department.
The project will be housed in the exhibition space of the Fondazione Prada, in via Fogazzaro, Milan. Rotor observes: “The Fogazzaro exhibition hall is the space where, each new season, the Prada fashion shows are held. Every one of these shows features a spectacular series of carefully constructed new ideas. To communicate to the audience, these ideas require materialization. Beyond the brief moments of its meaningful existence, that embodiment acquires greater weight. From an idea turned into a form, what is left is just a physical presence.”
The exhibition runs from April 13th until June 5th. Private view on April 13th, from 6 to 9 PM. Adress: Via Fogazzaro 36, Milano
