Building Bridges is Lorenzo Quinn's most ambitious project to date. Six pairs of monumental hands bridge the basin of the Arsenale in Venice as both a symbol of our commonality and an expression of human aspiration. The project depicts six of humanity's universal values - 'Friendship', 'Faith', 'Help', 'Love', 'Hope' and 'Wisdom' - each symbolised by human hands coming together to overcome differences and build a better world.

Famous as a city of connections through its canals and crossings, as an historic base of international trade, and as an ongoing hub of artistic exchange - Venice, a World Heritage Site with visitors from all over the globe, is an ideal place to spread a message of unity connecting societies, nations, communities and individuals through building bridges, not walls.

'Venice is the city of bridges. It is the perfect location to spread a message of world unity and peace so that more of us around the world build bridges with others rather than walls and barriers.'
Lorenzo Quinn
‘Building Bridges - A timely celebration of the importance of building differences rather than building walls, Lorenzo Quinn’s latest public sculpture is a must-see.’
