23a Esposizione Internazionale
July 15, 2022–January 8, 2023

Mondo Reale—organized by the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris, as part of the 23rd International Exhibition at the Triennale di Milano—includes films, paintings, photography, installations, and sculptures by seventeen international artists. The exhibition aims to explore reality as a reverie, proposing an aesthetic experience around knowledge and its erasure, and a direct, emotional encounter with multiple visions of the unknown through the lenses of art and science. Work by Patti Smith and Sarah Sze is included.

Sarah Sze: Timelapse
In this video, Sarah Sze elaborates on the creation of her solo exhibition Timelapse, on view through September 10, 2023. The show features a series of site-specific installations throughout the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, that explore her ongoing reflection on how our experience of time and place is continuously reshaped in relationship to the constant stream of objects, images, and information in today’s digitally and materially saturated world. In Sze’s reimagination of the Guggenheim’s iconic architecture, designed in the 1940s by Frank Lloyd Wright, the building becomes a public timekeeper reminding us that timelines are built through shared experience and memory.
