Mondo Reale Unknown Unknowns

July 15 2022 – January 8, 2023

On the occasion of the 23rd International Exhibition Triennale Milano Unknown Unknowns. An Introduction to Mysteries

The Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain has been invited by Triennale Milano to be part of the 23rd International Exhibition. Mondo Reale, curated by Hervé Chandès, Artistic Managing Director, is a reaction on the idea of mystery and unknown through the work of 17 international artists. If Unknown Unknowns steps away from the Earth to revolve around the notion of mystery in the universe, Mondo Reale is imagined as a landing in our real world, to focus on the wonders that inhabit our planet and all the secrets beneath its inscrutable perfection.


Including films, paintings, photography, installations and sculptures, Mondo Reale explores the reality as a reverie, proposing an aesthetic experience around knowledge and its erasure: a direct, emotional encounter with multiple visions of the unknown through the lens of art and science.
