"Everybody talks about the weather" at Fondazione Prada, Venice
“Everybody Talks About the Weather” is a research exhibition exploring the semantics of “weather” in visual art, taking atmospheric conditions as a point of departure to investigate the emergency of climate crisis
The project is conceived by curator Dieter Roelstraete for the historic palazzo of Ca’ Corner della Regina, Fondazione Prada’s Venetian venue. More than fifty works by contemporary artists and a complementary selection of historical artworks trace the various ways in which climate and weather have shaped our histories and how humanity has dealt with our everyday exposure to meteorological events. The exhibition design created by New York-based studio 2×4 entwines the artistic dimension of the project with a series of in-depth scientific spotlights developed in collaboration with The New Institute Centre For Environmental Humanities (NICHE) at Ca’ Foscari University in Venice.
