Utopia Matters: from Brotherhoods to Bauhaus

Friday, April 9th, 2010

A new appointment at Peggy-Guggenheim Museum here in Venice!

Utopia has always been a matter of investigation for many artists of the past and of the present. “A parallel place with its own storie” this is how Thomas More described his Utopia during the XVIth Century. Many others explored this “new field”, researching new places sometimes just located in their own thoughts.
Utopia Matters starts from here: an exposition that analyse this concept in the art and the grown of artistic communities.

Utopia Matters will be held from the 1st May 2010 until the 25th July 2010. The director is Vivien Green. For more information you can visit the official website of the museum .
