Artist Asad Raza collaborated with Converso to turn a former 16th-century church in Milan into a tennis court, complete with bright orange flooring, nets, personal coaches and iced jasmine tea in the sidelines. An avid tennis player himself, Raza “reorients the sport as a reflection on the importance of non-productive activities in a society focused on work.”
Called ‘Untitled (Plot of Dialogue)’, this installation was created for Converso, an art-dedicated exhibition space. It is is free for all who want to play tennis, but one can also come over to simply admire the historical, architectural and symbolic features of this unique and magnificent location.
Untitled (Plot for Dialogue) will run until December 16 at Piazza S Eufemia, 20122 Milan.
