Gallerie Mercatali, Viale del Lavoro Verona (PalaExpo parking)
In order to celebrate its 15th anniversary, ArtVerona is expanding the Fair experience by opening to the public the nearby Gallerie Mercatali. The 6,400 m2 of this fascinating industrial archeology building, currently being restored by Veronafiere, will be transformed for three days into Loony Park, a large environmental installation by the artist Norma Jeane, set up by Contemporary Locus and curated by Paola Tognon.
Not just a party but an artistic experience that evolves as days turn into night, entering into the mechanisms of entertainment – an interactive work that encompasses visual arts and performance and intertwines with sound thanks to the international guests invited by Path Festival, the stars of the great opening party to be held on Friday 11th October, and to the sound incursions that will animate the installation on the night between Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th October.
