ARTFUL READINGS: A rock in a museum

Pirelli HangarBicocca, via Chiese 2, Milano

max. 15

circa 90 minuti

How did a rock end up in a museum? Simple: the artist Kishio Suga put it there. And not just one – lots of them! What are they like? Big or small? Smooth or rough? Light or dark? Light or heavy? But are we sure they’re really rocks? We’ll read a book and then try to imagine what surprises they may have in store for us.
