Henrique Oliveira participates in “The End of the World”

(Prato, Italy)

Featuring works by three-times PIPA Prize nominee Henrique Oliveira—side by side with legends such as Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol, amongst many other artists—, the Luigi Pecci Centre for Contemporary Art presents the exhibition “The End of the World” in occasion of its reopening. Curated by director Fabio Cavallucci, the show goes until March 19th and spans through the entire exhibition area of the museum to incite its visitors to take a look at the present from a distance.

Along the way the audience will experience the feeling of being projected thousands of light years away to view our current world as if it were a fossil, geological eras from the present time, resulting in a feeling of being suspended in a limbo between a now distant past and a still distant future.

The exhibition also presents an exclusive series of events that hope to discuss its theme further. In February, for example, a talk with the astrophysicist Sperello di Serego Alighieri about “the origin, the evolution and the destiny of the universe” takes place in the 7th at 6 p.m.; in the 10th, at 9 p.m., it’s time for the duo Schnitt to present “Memory code”, a concert which features a live visual and audio set. Another events relating to the show are scheduled to happen towards the end of the month, so stay tuned.
