Comprising works by Alberto Biasi, Axel Lieber, Christian Megert and Nahum Tevet, the exhibition curated by Gianluca Ranzi focuses on the fascinating theme of chance, suggested by the title of the well-known book by the French biochemist Jacques Monod.

This show juxtaposes and relates together the cement and Corten steel sculptures by Mauro Staccioli (Volterra 1937-Milan 2018) with images on canvas, paper, and panel by Marco Tirelli (Rome 1956).
