Nomad Circle Venice
The show that establishes a unique dialog between works and personal context, creating a community of individuals looking for a different experience.
Coinciding with the 58th Venice Biennale Arte and the Biennale of Cinema, NOMAD will be deeply ingrained in the city's cultural fabric and introduce a new focus on contemporary design. A travelling event for collectable design, NOMAD brings together a selection of the world’s leading galleries in incredible architectural locations. Conceived by Giorgio Pace and Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte, NOMAD establishes a unique dialog between works and personal context, creating a community of individuals looking for a different experience.
NOMAD Venice is taking place in partnership with Venice Glass Week, aiming to strengthen one of Venice's historic artisan crafts and remaining industries. Venetian glassmaking exists since the 8th Century, and its tradition encompasses master-glassmakers working with materials of a special chemical composition melted under high temperatures in furnaces. With regards to the rich cultural heritage of Murano, the presence of leading artisans, renowned furnaces and schools, NOMAD is looking forward to initiate an international survey of the material and its contemporary diaspora through special projects, commissions and collaborations between local craft and global galleries or designers.
