  • Mario Merz: “La Casa Fibonacci”

    Fondacao de Serralves
    Rua de Serralves
    February 4–April 4, 1999

    Jorge Pardo’s shack in Los Angeles may be getting all the press, but the Serralves Foundation’s project (organized by Vincente Toldoli, the new director of the Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Serralves)—the realization of the “ideal” house of Merz’s imagination—sounds more conceptually dynamic, if a little less chic. Once the structure is complete, Merz will install sculptures and drawings to spruce up the decor. A book documenting the casa will include Merz’s writings about the project, to be published by Hopeful-monster. There are no plans for the home to go mobile.
