In this exhibition, NY-based Barcelona artist Antoni Muntadas focuses particularly on projects that deal with social and political objectives that are placed on two levels: perception and information.
His latest project observes Venetian etiquette, examining the reinvention and adaptation of protocols throughout time.
Protocolli Veneziani I is the first phase of the project, which consists of a series of photographs where Muntadas reveals the social etiquette governing life in the city. The underlying objective of Protocolli Veneziani I is to reveal the everyday life of Venice and the Venetians which is otherwise hidden from the outside world.
Throughout his career, Muntadas has participated in numerous exhibitions as well as hosting international seminars and teaching at academic institutions in Europe and the US. He has won several awards including the Velázquez Visual Arts Prize in 2009.
