All will be explained to the MAXXI public by the architects and artists whose works are on display in the exhibition SPACE, the first thematic exposition of the museum’s collections. Eight encounters, from October 2010 to January 2011, in which the protagonists talk about themselves, their poetic and the underlying principles of their work. An opportunity to explore, discuss and comment on the themes at core of the SPACE exhibition.
