Ever since the opening of the Collezione Maramotti, its permanent collection has been flanked by a systematic program of exhibitions and commissioned projects in the areas of the building which specifically function as venues for temporary events. The Collection looks ahead toward the future of art and sees it to be thoroughly continuous and consistent with the attention the Collection has always shown to the evolution of new artistic languages, especially in the area of painting and the critical investigation into the nature of the work of art.
Icarus Ensemble, in collaboration with Collezione Maramotti, presents the concert Echoes Saturday 16 May at 4.15 pm, at Spazio Icarus in Reggio Emilia. The musical event has been conceived for the opening of the exhibitions Enrico “La Caduta” David and Time Flies. A Highlight by Esko Männikkö, which will be presented together at Collezione Maramotti.
Concert attendance is free of charge, on a first come, first served basis, with advance booking required.
Max Mara Art Prize for Women | Corin Sworn
Corin Sworn, winner of the fifth edition of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women, presents her new large-scale installation at the Whitechapel Gallery of London from 20 May to 19 July 2015. Sworn's work draws from the characters and tales of the Commedia dell’Arte, a theatrical genre which the artist has deeply explored during her residency in Rome, Naples and Venice, focussing her research on the mistaken identity and the costumes proper to these plays. On show at the Whitechapel soon and at Collezione Maramotti from 3 October, the installation features a dramatic stage set with props, sound and video elements and costumes created with the Max Mara fashion house based on sketches of the artist.
