The MAXXI Museum in Rome is one of the city's most prestigious modern art venues. Recently, the heart of this contemporary building has undergone a renewal thanks to a newly designed permanent collection. The spirit and the identity of the museum have been renewed with the latest presentation of the MAXXI Collection: on display there are more than 30 works by a total of 26 artists which showcases some of the museum's newest acquisitions, including those by Monica Bonvicini, Katharina Grosse and Paolo Di Paolo, which were acquired in 2018 as a part of the museum's expansion policy. In the second part of the gallery, there are more than 20 other works, including pieces by Bill Viola, Giulio Turcato, Alighiero Boetti, Pablo Echaurren, Pei-Ming, Labics and Aldo Rossi which reflect the status of the work of art, the image and its perception in relation to space. With analogic instruments and new technologies, the thematic exhibition intends to, on the one hand, highlight the works strong link to painting and its traditions, while on the other hand, intending to create a counterpoint between the abstract and the figurative.
