The Triennale Teatro dell’Arte will also stage the premiere of PRISMA, a collaboration between choreographer Alessandro Sciarroni and video-artists Masbedo (Nicolò Massazza and Iacopo Bedogni), which is conceived as the final instalment of the miart 2018 communication campaign, created under the artistic direction of Mousse Agency. Commissioned by miart and Triennale Teatro dell’Arte, PRISMA draws together dance with video-art and aims to test the limits of what a promotional campaign can become via an artistic and multimedia collaboration.
PRISMA is the result of a partnership comprising In Between Art Film, Snaporazverein and Corpo Celeste.
Two new initiatives will conclude the Milan Art Week 2018: the Art Night Non-Profits Spaces on Saturday April 14—an evening with inaugurations and performances at the many project spaces and experimental venues in town—and the extended opening hours of Milanese private galleries on Sunday April 15.
