Once upon a time, in a building on the hillside on the outskirts of the city, there was a contemporary art collection..
So begins the story we’re going to tell you this summer. Three appointments will take place at the Foundation between June and August, to present Antonio Dalle Nogare’s collection. This trilogy will show, in a linear but not necessarily chronological way, how the works of the artists exhibited in the collection are born, looking at the same themes from different angles and reflecting the society of their time.
For each chapter of this story, the Foundation will offer a guided thematic path, open to all and free of charge, by appointment. In addition, on our website you will find texts and other material to download to further uncover the themes addressed, and nice initiatives for children – also available at the foundation premises in safe DIY kits. To end each appointment, we will show a movie dedicated to the artists we will talk about in every chapter of this story: the movie will be available on the day of the special guided tour here at the Foundation, or you can watch it in streaming from home, on the same day.
We look forward to seeing you all on June 6 at the Foundation for the first chapter of this trilogy, entitled “Beyond, Instead, Possible: Robert Barry and the Birth of Conceptual Art”. The next appointments will take place on July 4 and August 8, 2020. More information on the first chapter will be available shortly on this page.
