MAXXI B.A.S.E. meeting room – admittance free
On the occasion of the inauguration of exhibition Premio Italia Arte Contemporanea 2012 (from 27 January to 20 May 2012), the four selected artists, Giorgio Andreotta Calò, Patrizio Di Massimo, Adrian Paci and Luca Trevisani, will meet the public to discuss and explore the contents and the evolution of their work.
Carlos Basualdo, Curator at Large, and Giulia Ferracci, Assistant Curator at MAXXI Arte, will also be participating.
The Premio Italia Arte Contemporanea 2012, now in its second year, was created to support and promote the most recent developments on the contemporary art scene and the latest generation of Italian artists within the local and international contexts.
Furthermore, the prize represents an important opportunity for the expansion of the museum’s collection, which is also enhanced through the acquisition of specially commissioned and produced works.
