III. 

Exhibition: Borderlight. City as a vision
Artists: Borderlight Collective (Lorenzo Bruscaglioni, Emilia Castioni, Nicola Ciancio, Simona Da Pozzo, Cecilia Di Gaddo, Alice Grassi and Isabella Mara)
Venue: San Vittore e 40 Martiri
Dates: Until June 21st, 2018


This particular exhibition is set up in and around the ruin of the construction site of San Vittore e 40 Martiri. The exhibition is about the light: the show is a sort of synthesis of the experimentation that the Bordelight project has accomplished through the nocturnal milanese landscape. 
All the installations will be placed in public spaces of Milan, reconstructing in a single site-specific intervention, a unique event to re-think the role of light in urban space and the perception of space by citizens.
