The Prada Foundation has reproduced Herald Szeeman’s exhibition “When Attitudes Become Form” at Ca’ Corner della Regina in Venice.
The 1969 exhibition in Bern, Switzerland brought together some of the most adventurous young European and American avant-gardists of the day. Perceived as a radically loosened-up exhibition format, almost 70 exponents of post-Pop, post-Minimalist works were jammed into two floors and a nearby annex. “Attitudes Becomes Form: Bern 1969/Venice 2013”, curated by Germano Celant, Rem Koolhaas and Thomas Demand recreates the entire exhibition – walls, floors, installations and original art objects.
On November 19, The President of The Prada Foundation, Miuccia Prada and Curator, Germano Celant will be awarded The Leo Award and the Agnes Gund Curatorial Award by the Independent Curators International in New York for their contributions to the contemporary art world.
“Attitudes Becomes Form: Bern 1969/Venice 2013” is on view through November 3.
