Victor Burgin: Voyage to Italy is part of the Tangent series, which was initiated by the cultural historian Hubertus von Amelunxen, who selected close to two hundred images from the CCA collection and invited four invited artists into dialogue with this selection through the commission of new works that provide a tangential reading of architecture.
