Aviospace in the sponsorship of Contemporary Art event at Planetario di Torino e Museo dell’Astronomia e dello Spazio:
PULSAR, Art and Music from Space
project by Roberta Furno
curated by Arteco
With the cooperation of INFINI.TO – Planetario di Torino e Museo dell’Astronomia e dello Spazio
PULSAR_Art and Music from Space is the first exhibition of contemporary art to be hosted in INFINI.TO – Planetario di Torino e Museo dell’Astronomia e dello Spazio.
The project shows the analogies between visual arts, music and astronomy. The purpose of promoting contemporary art and music is combined with the desire to call attention to a fascinating museum.
The works, closely linked to the space hosting them, have been conceived or mounted using the suggestions, even architectural ones, coming from the unusual museum spaces. Alongside the display of installations and sculptures in the rooms there is a selection of artist videos created for the planetarium dome. The opening night also hosted live sound effects and performances.
Finally, a programme of conferences and talks with artists, curators, art historians and scientists marked the four weeks when the exhibition.
