The Breakfast Pavilion

The Breakfast Pavilion
A plus A, 9 am — 7 pm,
May 10, 11, 12 2017
San Marco 3073, Venice
The Breakfast Pavilion is a curatorial project that aims to merge the worlds of art and design in a special
happening, overthrowing the usual boundaries of each discipline. For this unique occasion, during
the opening days of the Venice Art Biennale, a contemporary art space (A plus A) will be transformed
into a friendly and informal café which will become a creative environment where art can be discussed,
produced, performed and most importantly, eaten. Particularly in Italy, breakfast is one the most important moments of the day. It is a social time when friends, colleagues and families meet to prepare themselves for their everyday lives.During each of these three days, the three invited artists
(Anna Sophie Berger, Olaf Nicolai, Nicole Wermers) will prepare and perform a unique breakfast for
their hosts, from 9 to 12 am (during which time admission to the gallery will be by invitation only). Furthermore the setting of the gallery will be transformed into a café by a selection of international designers with diverse practices. They will contribute to the event through objects conceived for this occasion that will be used during the performances (and up for sale).
The temporary pavilion is conceived as a gathering space to create a community where individuals can share personal, creative and intellectual ideas in a socially inclusive atmosphere. From 12 am to 7 pm the gallery will be open to public that will have the opportunity to visit the space, drink a coffee or eat a slice of cake or have a meeting. As a witness of the happening, a publication of the event will also be realized.
The Breakfast Pavilion is a project curated by Marco Campardo, Lorenzo Mason (M–L–XL) and Luca Lo Pinto with the special contribution of Maria Jeglinska. You can contact M–L–XL for further details writing an email to
