The “Golden Age” features gold waterfalls that serve as a dialogue with the golden mosaics in the Basilica and runs Sept. 1 to Nov. 15.
DIGITAL GOLD: As the cultural scene gradually reawakens in Europe following months of coronavirus cancellations, Dior is doing its part to fire things back up, sponsoring an exhibit called “L’Età d’Oro,” or the Golden Age, by Fabrizio Plessi in Venice.
The 80-year-old artist has set up digital waterfalls of gold in the windows of the Correr Museum, which lines one side of Venice’s Piazza San Marco, facing the Basilica. The installation reinforces the message held in between the paws of the city’s lion — the words “pax tibi,” which mean “peace upon thee,” figures in the waterfall, which will also carry a soundtrack by Michael Nyman. The British composer has worked with Plessi in the past.
