Kunst Meran Merano Arte presents the first institutional exhibition of Studio Other Spaces (SOS). Founded in Berlin in 2014 by Danish artist Olafur Eliasson and German architect Sebastian Behmann, SOS combines art and architecture through experimental and interdisciplinary work.

The presentation of various projects, models, prototypes and objects illustrates the studio’s in-depth research and conscious handling of space and resources. For Kunst Meran/Merano Arte the studio has developed a new, sustainable and highly contemporary form of presentation that invites viewers to rethink the traditional way in which architectural exhibitions are staged.

Artist: Lisa Ponti
Curators: Christiane Rekade, Salvatore Licitra (Archivio Lisa Ponti und Gio Ponti Archives), Massimo Martignoni

The exhibition for the first time offers an insight into the rich world of the drawings of Lisa Ponti (1922-2019), artist, author and long-time editor of Domus magazine. While her drawings are less well-known than her work as an architectural and art critic, they clearly demonstrate that Lisa Ponti was more than capable of working independently of her father, the famous architect and designer Gio Ponti.

Immediacy and directness – applied to the paper in decisive, dynamic strokes – are what distinguish Ponti’s works, as well as her wonderful poetry, fine humour and restrained elegance. Her drawings were exclusively done on sheets of A4 paper. In the words of the artist: “È un bene usare un foglio sempre uguale, cosi il disegno sa dove atterrare [It’s good always to use the same size of paper so the drawings know where to land]”.

18.09.2020: SOFT OPENING

Am 18. September beginnt die neue Ausstellungssaison und es werden gleich zwei Ausstellungen eröffnet:

SOS – The design of collaboration

Lisa Ponti – …così il disegno sa dove atterrare

 

Angesichts der aktuellen Situation werden die Ausstellungen statt mit einer abendlichen Vernissage, mit einem Eröffnungstag gefeiert. Das Kunsthaus ist für alle Besucher*innen ganztägig kostenlos zugänglich (10-19 Uhr).


Ihr seid alle herzlich willkommen!

 

Das Veranstaltungsjahr 2020 war zuerst durch den Lockdown und dann mit den schweren Unwetterschäden am Kunsthaus vom 22. August überaus schwierig und hat uns viel Phantasie und Improvisationsgeist abverlangt.

Bevor wir nun mit Freude zur nächsten Eröffnung einladen dürfen, möchten wir allen danken, die gemeinsam mit Herta Torggler, der scheidenden Direktorin und Sanierungskoordinatorin, die massiven Wasserschäden in allen Stockwerken in Rekordzeit behoben haben. In nur 10 Tagen ist es gelungen, im ganzen Haus alle notwendigen Sanierungsarbeiten durchzuführen und planmäßig mit dem neuen Ausstellungsaufbau zu beginnen. 

 

Unser aufrichtiger Dank geht daher an:

SPARIM AG, Herrn Daniele Vallini (Baustellenleiter)
