La Triennale reaffirms its decision to continue the tradition of the International Exhibition, the XXI edition which was held in 2016 after a twenty-year hiatus.

Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival

The thematic exhibition is an in-depth exploration of the strands that connect humans to the natural environment that have been intensely compromised, if not entirely severed, over the years. By casting a wide net on architecture and design projects, Broken Nature will underline the concept of restorative design, highlighting objects and concepts at all scales that reconsider human beings’ relationship with their environments – including both natural and social ecosystems.

Special Commissions

A number of directly commissioned works complements the loans in the thematic exhibition and will highlight design approaches aimed not only at correcting humanity’s self-destructive course, but also at replenishing our relationship with the environment and with all species  – including other human beings.

The Nation of Plants

A non-technical scientific exhibition conceived by Stefano Mancuso, one of the world's leading experts in plant neurobiology. The exhibition is based on the idea that one of the ways to avoid a catastrophic future for humanity is to take a radically new approach to plants, using them not just for what they have to offer us, but also for what they can teach us.

Combining aesthetics and technology developed by United Visual Artists, The Great Animal Orchestra offers an immersion into the heart of the sounds of nature recorded by bioacoustician Bernie Krause, and a sound and visual meditation on the necessity of preserving the beauty of the animal world. The installation is part of Broken Nature thematic exhibition and was created in 2016 at the initiative of the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain.
