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.

In October Autoritratto, seminal work in Claudio Parmiggiani’s research, will be loaned to the MART of Trento and Rovereto for an exhibition curated by Jean-Luc Nancy, called L’altro ritratto.
Two projects produced by, and exhibited in Collezione Maramotti will travel to Sweden and China.
Malick Sidibè. La vie en rose, an exhibition in production, curated by Laura Serani and Laura Incardona, after its presentation in Moscow at the Ekaterina Cultural Foundation, will be on display in August 2013 at the Marabouparken in Stockholm and may be visited until December 2013.
The large installation commissioned to Kaarina Kaikkonen Are We Still Going On? has been requested by K11 Concept – Art Department of Shanghai - and will be exhibited from 9 August to 10 September 2013.
Flavio de Marco at Künstlerhaus Bethanien
Collezione Maramotti is pleased to announce an exhibition by Flavio de Marco at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin from 22 August to 22 September 2013.
The exhibition consists of works representing the first stage of the artist's new project, called Stella. Two other cycles will be presented at the Frankendael Foundation of Amsterdam and at the Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna in Rome. The project consists of about twenty paintings and drawings depicting landscapes. In these the artist creates an artificial island, located in the middle of the Aegean Sea. Landscape paintings from the history of art and illustrations of real-life landscapes serve as his models.
The project also includes a book/catalogue (publishing house Danilo Montanari) with the same title, designed and written by the artist. It is a sort of illustrated travel guide of the artificial island bearing the same name. The Italian/English text intersperses the images/details of the original paintings of the artist and drawings. For the most part Stella is dedicated to the description of the geographical and landscape layout. But the book is not only the description of an island but rather an articulated discourse that de Marco develops around paintings, landscape and the state of art.
The book has been prepared in collaboration with Collezione Maramotti which continues its support of de Marco's artistic research in painting. His work is widely represented in the Collection thanks to a site-specific project made in 2010 titled Vedute, later exhibited, in a smaller version, at the Italian Cultural Institute in London.
