MAXXI Square / Gallery 1 – free entrance for everyone from Tuesday to Thursday (public holidays excluded)
curated by Margherita Guccione and Bartolomeo Pietromarchi
The spirit and the identity of the museum are being renewed with the latest presentation of the MAXXI Collection: on display are more than 30 worksby a total of 26 artists in a major group show that opens with a section dedicated to some of the 70 new acquisitions, including those by Monica Bonvicini, Katharina Grosse and Paolo Di Paolo, which have in 2018 enriched the museum’s holdings and which are part of a policy of expansion, valorization and safeguarding of the collection.
In the second part of the gallery are more than 20 works, including pieces by Bill Viola, Giulio Turcato, Alighiero Boetti, Pablo Echaurren, Pei-Ming, Labics and Aldo Rossi reflect on the status of the work of art, the image and its perception in relation to space.
With analogic instruments and new technologies, the thematic exhibition intends on the one hand to highlight the works’ strong link to painting and its traditions and on the other create a counterpoint between the abstract and the figurative.
