Fondazione Berengo presents “Welcome! A Palazzo for Immigrants”, a site-specific solo exhibition by interdisciplinary artist Osman Yousefzada in partnership with the Victoria & Albert Museum. Curated by Nadja Romain and Amin Jaffer, the intervention at the Palazzo Franchetti is a continuation of a body of work originally commissioned by the British Council that explores themes of unity, movement, and migration in modern society.

Using a combination of textile fibres and handblown Murano glass in collaboration with the maestros of Berengo Studio Yousefzada presents a vital dialogue that uses the artisanal traditions of the Venetian lagoon to interrogate race, class, and belonging.
