Fondazione Prada opens new venue in Milan
Fondazione Prada’s new Milan venue is scheduled to open to the public on 9 May 2015. From May and throughout summer 2015, Fondazione Prada will present a wide range of activities. Robert Gober and Thomas Demand will realize site-specific installations in dialogue with the industrial architecture and the new spaces in the compound. Roman Polanski will explore the cinematographic inspirations behind his artistic vision, which will translate into a new documentary and a series of film screenings. Selections of artworks from the Prada Collection will be presented in a series of thematic exhibitions.
Exhibitions ‘Serial Classic’, in Milan (9 May – 24 August 2015), and ‘Portable Classic’, in Venice (9 May – 13 September 2015) both curated by Salvatore Settis—in collaboration with Anna Anguissola and Davide Gasparotto—will complete the program. These two projects, whose display system has been conceived by OMA, analyze the themes of seriality and the copy in classical art and the reproduction of small-scale Greek and Roman sculptures from the Renaissance to Neoclassicism, respectively.
