Work in progress

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.

Jeannette Montgomery Barron | Scene
from 4 May 2014
The exhibition presents a selection of artists' photo portraits, made in New York in the 1980's: some of them are also included in the volume Scene. The lively and personal portraits' gallery brings back the flavour and brilliance of those years when in New York artists and galleries experimented new life styles and relations which with time have became established cult objects and models. The photographs chosen for the exhibition are mostly linked to artists depicted with their works which are now part of the permanent collection (Clemente, Schnabel, Basquiat, Salle, Bleckner, and others), thus providing viewers with an interesting connection between the photo subject and the art works they were making at the time.
