On July 22th 2015 Glasstress Gotika and Berengo Studio’s Furnace had some very special visitors: a group led by Zhou Siyuan, Secretary of the CPC Committee of Jinjiang District, Chengdu, China.
Chengdu, provincial capital of Sichuan province, is one of the cities with the biggest economical and industrial growth in the Western and Southwest China. This situation of wealth is also developing a great interest in art and its market.
To enrich the cultural and artistic environment of Chengdu, Zhou Siyuan and Adriano Berengo, founder of Berengo Studio and Berengo Foundation, met planning to export Glasstress in Chengdu in the next future for a special exhibition.
It would be the first time for Glasstress, the collateral event of the Venice Biennale of Contemporary Art since 2009, to be displayed in China.
