TheВ BreakfastВ Pavilion

a cura di Marco Campardo & Lorenzo Mason (M–L–XL) e Luca Lo Pinto con la partecipazione di Maria

dal 10 al 12 maggio 2017

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 thatВ aims to merge the worlds of art and design in a special
happening, overthrowing the usual boundaries ofВ each discipline. For this unique occasion, during
the opening days of the Venice Art Biennale, aВ contemporary art space (A plus A) will be transformed
into a friendly and informal cafГ© which will becomeВ a creative environment where art can be discussed,
produced, performed and most importantly, eaten.В Particularly in Italy, breakfast is one the mostВ important moments of the day. It is a social timeВ when friends, colleagues and families meet toВ prepare themselves for their everyday lives.DuringВ each of these three days, the three invited artists
(Anna Sophie Berger, Olaf Nicolai, Nicole Wermers)В will prepare and perform a unique breakfast for
their hosts, from 9 to 12 am (during which timeВ admission to the gallery will be by invitationВ only). Furthermore the setting of the galleryВ will be transformed into a cafГ© by a selection ofВ international designers with diverse practices.В They will contribute to the event through objectsВ conceived for this occasion that will be used duringВ the performances (and up for sale).
The temporary pavilion is conceived as aВ gathering space to create a community whereВ individuals can share personal, creative andВ intellectual ideas in a socially inclusive atmosphere.В From 12 am to 7 pm the gallery will be open toВ public that will have the opportunity to visitВ the space, drink a coffee or eat a slice of cake orВ have a meeting. As a witness of the happening, aВ 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
