Lina Bo Bardi: Together pays tribute to the Italian architect who moved to her adopted Brazil in 1946 leaving an impressive legacy. This exhibition celebrates Lina’s capacity to engage with every facet of culture and to see the potential in all manner of people. Artwork by Madelon Vriesendorp and films by Tapio Snellman recreate Lina’s work and allow a more direct experience through a form of re-enactment. Photographs of Casa de Vidro (The Glass House) by Ioana Marinescu show the objects (from toys and shells to art and recycled things) that Lina chose to display in the house she lived in with her husband Pietro Maria Bardi.

Curator of Lina Bo Bardi: Together is Noemi Blager and the exhibition is made possible by Arper, who today manufacture the Bowl Chair, designed by Lina in 1951.

On the Opening talks were held by: Noemí Blager, curator of the exhibition, Matthias Böttger, creative director DAZ and Marco Benvegnù, Brand Manager Arper.
