As soft as… concrete
Architecture workshop

What’s involved?
The building is a gentle giant composed of long galleries, curving walls, great heights and stairs projecting out into the void like flying carpets. A space in which the sensorial perception is unique and enthralling. During the exploration/visit the children will discover the architecture and the materials it is made of. Through corporeal exercises and performance activities they will measure its dimensions and experience its forms. During the workshop they will recompose this spatial, tactile and emotive experience, reconstructing the plan of the museum with an assemblage of diverse materials.

Action/Installation
visit/exploration to the installations in the permanent collection

What’s involved?
From sculpture to installation, from drawing to video, contemporary artists choose diversified strategies to discuss our time. What relationship is there between the materials, the techniques and the forms chosen by the artist and the meaning of the work? In what way does the installation relate to MAXXI’s fluid spaces? And how does the spectator interact with the works of contemporary art? On the basis of direct experience, the children discover and experience first hand the installations in the museum galleries.
