Talks around the MAXXI Collection with direct contributions from the artists and tributes to the great contemporary masters.

On this occasion Anna Maria Maiolino, in dialogue with the MAXXI Arte Director Bartolomeo Pietromarchi, discusses the body of her work displayed in the senzamargine exhibition. Beginning with the photographic work generated by her most famous performances such as Entrevidas (1981) through to her sculptural works and works on paper, profoundly linked to gesture and the body, which together make up the artist’s unmistakable language..

In collaboration with Galleria Raffaella Cortese.

A programme of online talks designed to explore the themes and creative processes behind the selection of works on show in the exhibition senzamargine. Passages in Italian art at the turn of the millennium, a tribute to nine great masters of contemporary art on the occasion of their inclusion in the MAXXI Collection, thanks to the contribution of MiBACT.

Major installations and important works produced in their mature years by the nine artists often considered being on the fringes of the best-known movements. All of them, over the years, have succeeded in maintaining independent and original research, such as to be considered a point of reference for the artists of subsequent generations.

Thanks to the protagonists’ direct testimony and the participation of critics, curators, and scholars, the events are an opportunity for dialogue and reflection on the evolution of artistic language over the last forty years.
