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, 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.
