Parallel to the Venice Art Biennale, the show by Robert Wilson entitled The dish ran away with the spoon everything you can think of is true marks the 25th anniversary of the illy Art Collection, the series of cups made in collaboration with international artists since 1992.


A sequence of seven spaces the versatile American artist has organized with a wide range of different artistic languages.


A Siberian tiger in a forest straight out of paintings by Hieronymus Bosch, mechanical rabbits in a vintage interior, wolves and volcanoes, cranes and apes in a garden, an elegant panther and a final surprise for the setting for the Wunderkammer as a tribute to the iconic cups designed by Matteo Thun in 1991 and interpreted, over the 25 years of the illy Art Collection, by renowned artists like Marina Abramović, Robert Rauschenberg, Jeff Koons, Julian Schnabel, Anish Kapoor and Daniel Buren.
