Last week, SAX200 curator Géry Dumoulin accompanied 18 instruments to Venice. The objects are lent to the Fondazione Prada for their Art or Sound exhibition (June 7 - November 3).
Looking at the stuff they wanted from our collection, the exhibition might as well have been entitled Animal or Sound. The mim lends out 3 different types of serpents and 6 "monster buccins".
But Géry would not have been Géry had he not included also a beautiful 6-valved trumpet by Adolphe Sax.
