Fault Lines by Allora & Calzadilla is the first major solo exhibition of the work of the American artists Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla in Italy. The artistic duo that represented the United States of America at the 2011 Venice Biennale is known for their socially engaged videos, installations, sculptures and performances. Their work has been featured in many major exhibitions around the world. For their collaboration with Fondazione Nicola Trussardi, Allora & Calzadilla conceived an exhibition that presents a selection of new and recent pieces that examine the concept of borders.
The exhibition takes place in the spaces of Palazzo Cusani, an extraordinary 17th Century palace in the heart of Milan, Italy, close to the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera. The Palazzo, normally used by the Army Command for Lombardy, is open for the first time to the world contemporary art. Allora & Calzadilla transformed the unique space into a succession of sounds, sculptures, performances, and images.
