Jannis Kounellis

Jannis Kounellis curated by Germano Celant at Fondazione Prada in Venice, explores the artistic and exhibition history of Kounellis’ work from 1959–2015. 2x4 designed the catalogue and exhibition graphics in partnership with Fondazione Prada.

Structured as a continuous stream of content, the catalogue examines the artist’s career through its linear progression. It is organized into decade-long sections that switch between detailed documentation of the artist’s working life—including past exhibition materials, invitations, posters and archival images—and photographs taken by Kounellis’ life-long collaborator Claudio Abate. We also designed exhibition graphics in the form of a series of panels coordinated with the documentation placed throughout the gallery and intended to echo the stream of documentation.
