Worldwide known as a research, innovation and connection centre between different fields, 5VIE returns to Fuorisalone 2019 focusing on the territory and the natural resources that derive from it.

Recognized internationally as a research, innovation and connection centre between different fields, 5VIE art + design district returns for the sixth consecutive year and is defined as the real “diffused design museum”.
The news this year was presented in via Santa Marta 18, Siam headquarters, Società di Incoraggiamento Arti e Mestieri; to celebrate its 180 anniversary, 5VIE will focus on the territory and the natural resources that derive from it.

After studying and interpreting the theme, the projects will be presented to the public following 5VIE editorial nature, with 3 exhibitions and one site-specific installation with the help of important curators.

We start from the basements of Siam with “Human Code” exhibition from Roberto Sironi curated by Annalisa Rosso. Set in a parallel dimension, the exhibition will be a journey through anthropology, technology, testing processes and materials, during which Sironi will address the burning theme of Big Data, questioning the heritage that we will leave to posterity and redefining the start date of the Anthropocene, which according to the artist, started with the appearance of man, always in antithetical relationship with nature.

“Il pesce e gli Astanti” will be the protagonist at the Oratorio della Passione in Sant’Ambrogio square, the first personal exhibition from Carlo Massoud curated by Maria Cristina Didero. Apart from the most meaningful works from the young Lebanese designer, there will also be a site-specific installation: a ceramic altarpiece, which aims to be an ironic and intense reinterpretation of an ecclesiastic moment from the Christian liturgy. A project developed with the sister Mary-Lynn Massoud, suspended between the physical nature of the objects and the spiritual tension of the context.

Bronze is the protagonist of the third exhibition, “L’ultima Cera”, curated by the Fonderia Battaglia Art Director Bellavance-Lecompte, inspired by Anton Alvarez residence, dedicated to the exploration of the processing of this material. In particular, the 12-pieces exhibition explains how Alvarez transformed the wax extruder, creating shapes that will be casted in bronze becoming unique pieces.

Events that shouldn’t be missed are the exhibition of Masterly – The Dutch at Palazzo Turati celebrating the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death and The Litta Variations / Opus 5 at Palazzo Litta, curated by MoscaPartners with the installation Echo in the internal courtyard from Pezo von Ellrichshausen studio.

The district’s guest of honour is Ugo La Pietro with his exhibition “Design territorial, Genius Loci” in the courtyard of via Cesare Correnti 14, focusing on the importance of the artistic craftsmanship, second-rate if compared with the industrial one. Lastly, 5VIE district is also a cultural promoter with the Design Pride from Seletti, with wagons, music and performances.
