"Stop Painting" is an exhibition conceived by the artist Peter Fischli, in the historic building of Ca 'Corner della Regina, the Venetian headquarters of the Prada Foundation.

The project explores a series of breaking moments in the history of painting over the last 150 years, about the emergence of new social factors and cultural values. The exhibition also intends to understand whether the current digital revolution can be at the origin of a new crisis in painting or, on the contrary, can contribute to its renewal.

“Stop Painting” brings together more than 110 works created by more than 80 artists and develops on the first noble floor of the building following a personal and idiosyncratic approach and avoiding presenting the works according to a simple chronological order. The artist conceived this exhibition consisting of 10 sections as a plurality of narratives told by himself in the first person. The exhibition itinerary begins on the ground floor of Ca 'Corner della Regina with a new site-specific work by Fischli, a reduced-scale model of the entire project, defined by the artist as "a sculpture of a painting exhibition".
