Michael Werner Gallery presents James Lee Byars's sculpture "The Golden Tower" in the Campo San Vio, Venice with the support of Fondazione Giuliani, Rome and the curation of Alberto Salvadori. Byars envisioned "The Golden Tower" as a colossal beacon and oracle that would bridge heaven and earth and unify humanity – a contemporary monument surpassing the grandeur of the Lighthouse of Alexandria. The idea of "The Golden Tower" first began in 1976 and was developed with numerous conceptual studies throughout the artist’s career. This presentation is an event of the LVII Venice Biennale and the first installation of "The Golden Tower" to fully realize the artist’s intentions of presenting the sculpture in a public space.
