Artist James Lee Byar’s Golden Tower

Venezia's Monumental Installation Of Hand-Placed Gold Leaf

May, 2017
James Lee Byars' The Golden Tower, Venice Biennale 2017

The late artist James Lee Byars’ The Golden Tower can be seen from boat, bridge and pleasantly on the way to the Peggy Guggenheim Museum. The work is a perfect example of fine Milanese craftsmanship and considered handiwork. The tower is made up of 5 parts which were hand gilded in gold leaf by the Manetti Gilders in Milan – the same gilders who hand-applied the gold leaf on the Haunted House at Fondazione Prada. Through the organisation of Michael Werner Gallery, the 5 pieces then travelled to Venice where they arrive by boat and were installed piece by piece. On view collaterally for the La Biennale di Venezia, the 57th International Art Exhibition.
