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.


Collezione Maramotti is pleased to announce the updating of its present and fall events, before the summer closing, from 1 to 25 August.

Now you can find in-depth materials of the exhibitions still running dedicated to Enrico David (until 18 October) and Esko Männikkö (until 27 September): images, videos and excepts from books are available in our website.

Two new temporary exhibitions will open on 4 October: the new project Silent Sticks by Corin Sworn, winner of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women, in collaboration with the Whitechapel Gallery, and the group exhibition Industriale immaginario with works from the Collezione.
On 4 October the Collection will also host the announcement of the shortlisted artists for the sixth edition of the Max Mara Art Prize (event by invitation).

On the occasion of the Day of Contemporary Art, Saturday 10 October at 3.30pm, the long-feature film dedicated to Corin Sworn will be screened at the Collection. The film, made by 3D Produzioni, exclusively for Sky Arte HD, and commissioned by Collezione Maramotti and Max Mara, documents the artist's residency in Italy. Seats are limited, reservation is necessary.

Within the program of Aperto festival, the Collezione will host a site specific performance by Hofesh Shechter from 3 to 5 November.

Loans to international institutions continue as well, including two works by Alberto Burri lent to the Guggenheim Museum in New York for the large retrospective dedicated to the artist for the hundred anniversary of his birth, opening on 9 October.
