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.
Max Mara Art Prize for Women: Corin Sworn
A major new art commission by Corin Sworn, the latest winner of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women, is unveiled in May 2015 at the Whitechapel Gallery, London and October 2015 at Collezione Maramotti, Reggio Emilia. The work follows the artist’s 6-month Italian residency in Rome, Naples and Venice and marks the culmination of the fifth edition of the Prize.
Marking the midway point of the Prize and the end of Corin Sworn’s residency in Italy, in November 2014 she invites celebrated poet Lisa Robertson to join her in a collaborative presentation of readings.
