A renewal at the heart of the museum with a new set- up of the permanent Collection

The identity of the MAXXI lies in its Collection: the set-up entitled The Place to Be saw a threefold increase of space, transforming the Collection into a living and dynamic body. From the piazza (featuring installations by Elisabetta Benassi, Paola Pivi and works by Maurizio Nannucci and Massimo Grimaldi) to the inside space, with masterpieces and works never exhibited before.

The new set-up in Gallery 1 features a new area dedicated to the display of new acquisitions including Monica Bonvicini, Katharina Grosse, Hassan Hajjaj and Labics. After The Place to Be an in-depth analysis of space, places and relation, the new exhibition itinerary is devoted to a different idea of images at the turn of the 21st century.
The capillary spread of mass media and the era of global communication have led artists to explore new visions and new expression styles. Between analogical tools and technologies, works on display include Pablo Echaurren, Stefano Arienti, Tony Oursler, Bill Viola, Giulio Turcato.
