Serial Classic is the first exhibition in the newly opened exhibition space of Fondazione Prada in Milan. It focuses on classical sculpture and explores the ambivalent relationship between originality and imitation in Roman culture.
The exhibition includes more than 70 works with an in-depth analysis of lost originals and their multiple copies, the materials and the colours of classical bronzes and marbles and the technologies and methods used in the making of the copies.
Portable Classic is the counterpart exhibition that will run from May 9 to September 13 at the Ca’ Corner della Regina in Venice. Both exhibitions are curated by Salvatore Settis, in collaboration with Anna Anguissola and Davide Gasparotto.
