The exhibition, which takes place in Venice, is mainly about water shortage as a natural resource and about the problems and consequences that might arise from privatisation and control of water such as the possibility for everyone to have access to it. "Unità Mobili di Intervento" and a series of installations from the collection and distribution of water will be present at the exhibition. A practical demonstration of their functionings will take place at Biennale The artists in fact will create a symbolic system of filtration and purification of water in order to transform Canal Grande water into drinkable water put into bottles and ready to be drunk and handed out at the summer Venetian exhibition. Lucy Orta, was born in England in 1966, got a degree in fashion design. Since the ninetees she has been very active highlightening crucial themes like community and social drop outs phenomenon , the abode, mobility, supported development and recycling. Jorge Orta, was born was born in Argentina in 1953, has studied fine arts and architecture. During the military dictatorship in Argentina, Jorge has developed many visual alternative and avant-garde forms of communication such as mail art and video-installations, performances and big size ephemeral works.

"Philip-Lorca di Corcia Photographs 1975-2003"

"Photographs are anti-events not only becouse I think they are an interesting matter but also becouse I want to do away with the photograph allure: the offer of a second-hand experience. Only those who deceive themselves think that objective reality can define what is real. I don't propose my work as an advanced definition of reality(..).I'm simply aware that what we see in this world is deceptive. I'm interested in society in general(…). The road doesn't lead people to share the knowledge of themselves. People seem to withdraw into themselves, less and less conscious of what surround them". (Philip-Lorca diCorcia, 1997),

These are the words used by the american artist Philip-Lorca di Corcia (1953, Hartford, Connecticut), to define the sense of his work. A personal exhibition, which takes place at Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa, is devoted to him with strong references to the main masters of author photography such as Robert Frank, William Egglestone, Lee Friedlander and Robert Adams. The city with its nuances, its contradictions and its charachters is the central theme of Philip-Lorca photographs. Street photography infact shows the human and subhuman face of European and American metropolis with its alienations and its alienated people and it is sometimes the protagonist or the cause of actions produced by man with more or less awareness. We find on display a Storybook Life, which is an important part of this personal exhibition since it tells of a period of 25 years of the artist's life where private life and non private life merge and mingle, where art and life overlap and mix up. His seventysix photographs taken over the period 1975-1999, portray his friends, his family, his journeys, but above all his life with its lights and shades, its joy and its sorrow and which make the present a constant source of inspiration. All these themes are present in his serial works produced from the end of the eighties up to now such as Hustlers (1990-1992), showing the life of young street boys taken in Hollywood, Streetwork (1993-1998) and later on, Two Hours (1999) and Heads. The exhibition curator is Filippo Maggia and the exhibition is organized in cooperation with Whitechapel Gallery, London, and with the participation of the Centre Nationale de la Photographie in Paris (now part of the new Jeu de Paume); Folkwang Museum in Essen; Magasin 3, Stokholm Konsthall e Centro de Artes Visuais di Salamanca.

Running Exhibition from September 11th to November 8th 2004
"Emmanuel Babled Toys Unit, megalit, genetic"

A personal exhibition, devoted to the glass designer Emmanuel Babled (1967), one of the most important and internationally well known artist of our time, will be held in the showroom of Palazzetto Tito in Venice. The works belong to a series, the title of which is ''TOYS'', made exclusively by the famous glassworks firm VENINI. Three different type of objects are on display. Although they are aesthetically and formally very different one from another, they have all been made using the old way of making glass but with particular attention to contemporary culture. The series known as Genetic has references to the fast genetic evolution : veins, arteries, body organs that can take the form of human intervention . The series known as Unita' has a constant reference to architecture, namely to the artificial structures that man create to hold itself : even a building is like a pot , a machine that garantues a flux of way in and way out presences. The series known as Megalit shows the ''pot idea'' in its size limit and in its semantic revisitation. This exhibition shows the great capacity and modernistic refined way used by Babled in working such a difficult and fragile material as glass.

Running Exhibition from September 10th to November 8th 2004
"Moreno Gentili Mutazioni tecnologiche"

The personal exhibition dedicated to Gentili Moreno, has recently been opened at Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa, in the Piazza S. Marco seat. The exhibition called Technological mutations sums up the subject matters of Gentili's art, namely technology and even its most obscure and unknown aspects such as production mechanism and its other unclear implications. The entire work of the artist , of which we can view the works made in the last ten years, spans from fotography to visual art. The exhibition is divided into 3 sections : the first one is devoted to pictures taken in Porto Marghera industrial area in 1991; the second part (1992-2004) consists of industrial processes pictures like metallurgical and chemical ones biological research and arm industries. Pictures of dangerous and remote areas , taken by the artist who had often to disguise himself in order not be identified. The third section has been started in 2001 and will be concluded in 2006 with a book the explicative title of which is DO NOT CROSS and that will be presented at the Mantova literature festival. The project, which represents a chart of Europe residual green area, is a manifesto against the fierce deforestation of our territories, although the artist doesn't take into consideration the contradiction between human evolution and nature and species survival induding human being.
