Nine Journeys Through Time. Alcantara and Art in the Apartment of the Prince, the third episode in a cycle of shows which since 2016 has explored the surprising qualities of Alcantara as a material for artistic creation, transforming the spaces of the Apartment of the Prince into gateways onto the elsewhere of art.

In this exhibition, offering an exceptional combination of talents, ten contemporary artistic outlooks are brought together, expressing their visions in a range of languages, from painting to fashion, from digital design to music. They have drawn inspiration from the specifics of a unique medium, and have observed Alcantara® in all its various declinations and potential, exploring its invention and production processes, working with technicians and experts, be it along independent paths or through innovative collaboration projects.

The ten artists called upon to interpret nine different space-time expeditions launched by Alcantara from the Apartment of the Prince are: Aaajiao, Andrea Anastasio, Caterina Barbieri, Krijn De Koning, Li Shurui, Chiharu Shiota, Esther Stocker and Iris Van Herpen, Zeitguised, Zimoun.
