Starting from the lockdown, MAXXI immediately activated itself through digital channels to start reflecting and designing a new world.
He immediately made the archives of all his exhibitions accessible and usable digitally through virtual visits led by the curators of the different sections of art and architecture.
So he flooded his social channels with rumors, reflections, ideas with a careful look at the 'after'. Through the initiative Actions of Artist, which was attended by artists of the caliber of Elisabetta Benassi, Enzo Cucchi and William Kentridge, the spectator is invited to enter the homes and minds of some of the most interesting and innovative protagonists of contemporary art.
Through A new world, the director of MAXXI Giovanna Melandri questions, together with scientists, philosophers, writers and artists, the prospects that await us in the post-pandemic world.
All this while waiting to celebrate the first ten years of MAXXI with a large retrospective postponed to 2021.
