Ron Mueck at Triennale Milano

Triennale Milano and the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain present the first Italian solo exhibition of the Australian artist Ron Mueck, featuring a selection of works that have never been shown before in Italy. This exhibition at the Triennale is an evolution of the show held in Paris in the summer of 2023, conceived by Fondation Cartier in close collaboration with the artist. It marks the third milestone in an uninterrupted exchange between Ron Mueck and the French institution, that has continued uninterrupted since 2005.

Siamo Foresta

Siamo Foresta stages an unprecedented encounter between thinkers and defenders of the forest; between Indigenous artists – from New Mexico to the Paraguayan Chaco through the Amazon (Brazil, Peru and Venezuela) – and non-Indigenous artists (Brazil, China, Colombia, France). The exhibition draws its founding inspiration from this aesthetic and political vision of the forest as an egalitarian multiverse of living beings, human and non-human and, as such, offers the vibrant allegory of a possible world beyond our anthropocentrism.

The Great Animal Orchestra

Bernie Krause’s soundscapes reveal that within any ecosystem, each species has its own acoustic niche and human activities are increasingly silencing these great animal orchestras.

After the success of its tour in Seoul, Shanghai, Milan, London, Boston, Sydney and Lille, The Great Animal Orchestra is presented in California, home to Bernie Krause.

Claudia Andujar and The Yanomami Struggle

Claudia Andujar and the Yanomami's work continue to raise visibility for their struggle to protect their land, people, and culture. In 2020, the Fondation Cartier presented the largest exhibition to date dedicated to the work of Claudia Andujar.

Since then, the exhibition expanded and was presented at Triennale Milano (2020) and at the SHED, New York (2023).

Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori

Sally Gabori began painting in 2005, around the age of eighty. The outstanding success of the exhibition is due to the striking discovery of a powerful painting as well as to a strong story of an artist whose work is deeply rooted in the traditions of her people.

Conceived and curated by Fondation Cartier and opened in Paris in 2022, the exhibition continued its journey at Triennale Milano (Milan).

The World Around

The Fondation Cartier and The World Around are excited to jointly announce a global cultural partnership, convening architecture’s now, near and next. We will be collaborating on three public programs in three different cities, bringing together the international architecture community around critical topics that address the many complex challenges of our time.
