The XXII International Exhibition at La Triennale in Milan called “Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival” opens on March 1 and runs until September 1, 2019. The International exhibition is an in-depth exploration of the factors that connect humans to the natural environment that have been intensely compromised underlining the concept of restorative design, highlighting objects and concepts at all scales that reconsider human beings’ relationship with their environments — including both natural and social ecosystems.
Broken Nature is curated by Paola Antonelli, Senior Curator of Architecture & Design, Director of Research & Development at The Museum of Modern Art in New York. She says “Broken Nature invites a deeper understanding of the complex and interconnected, multi-species systems we inhabit. It facilitates a perception of long time, beyond the lifespan of a few generations; and it offers visitors a clear idea of practical steps that can be taken toward a restorative attitude. The XXII Triennale di Milano celebrates the revolutionary power of imagination and ingenuity.”
