Venice: Crepaccio Pavilion At Yoox.com – The Venetians. In student digs right in the heart of Venice, Yoox.com and il Crepaccio presented the Crepaccio Pavilion at Yoox.com with an exhibition entitled The Venetians, curated by Caroline Corbetta. Distracted by international art superstars and glamorous events, few people pay attention to Venice’s lively local art scene. During The Venice Biennale, yoox.com, the world‟s leading virtual store for multi-brand fashion, design and art, joins forces with Il Crepaccio (literally meaning the crevasse), the much talked-about showcase for emerging artists, based in the Milanese restaurant frequented by Maurizio Cattelan, above, to offer global visibility to a group of young Venice-based artists through the project Padiglione Crepaccio at yoox.com. The exhibition presented simultaneously the works of The Venetians on two stages: both online and in the real world. During the three preview days of The Biennale, they displayed in the evocative context of an authentic artists’ house, in the center of Venice, the 17th century Ca‟ Soranzo, while, at the same time, the works are for sale globally, exclusively on yoox.com, for the entire six-month period of the duration of The Biennale.
