João Louro has carried out a site-specific intervention appropriating the spaces of the Palazzo Loredan Library and showing compositions from series like Dead Ends and Blind Images, as well as painting and both visual and sound installations. The role of the viewer is fundamental in all of his work, as for Louro the value of the work of art emerges from the link created between the work and the viewer.
