MAXXI and Bvlgari together for young contemporary art.

Giulia Cenci (Cortona, 1988, lives and works between Amsterdam and Tuscany), Tomaso De Luca (Verona, 1988, lives and works in Berlin) and Renato Leotta (Torino, 1982, lives and works in Acireale) are the three finalists of the second edition of MAXXI BVLGARI PRIZE, the project that unites MAXXI and Bvlgari, an icon of Italian excellence for 130 years, to support and promote young artists.

The three finalists were chosen by an international jury consisting of Hou Hanru (Artistic Director of MAXXI), Bartolomeo Pietromarchi (Director of MAXXI Arte), Manuel Borja-Villel (Director of the Reina Sofa Museum, Madrid), Emma Lavigne (President of the Palais de Tokyo) and e Victoria Noorthoorn (Director of the Museo de Arte Moderno, Buenos Aires).

Their works were specially created for the Prize and will be exhibited at MAXXI from October 2020. The winning work will become part of the Museum’s Collection.

A Week’s Notice by Tomaso De Luca wins the MAXXI BVLGARI PRIZE 2020 ”for the maturity and the ethical, social and political stand expressed by the work; for the subtle, calibrated and cultured poetics and the open dimension of the work, which leaves ample space for the viewer’s interpretation; for the synthesis and the ability to narrate a portion of history that has been forgotten but is central to understanding the importance of contemporary values such as emancipation and gender politics; for the promotion of all diversities conceived as a wealth for humanity”.
