Group exhibition “THE STREET. Where the World Is Made” at Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo

Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo (MAXXI) is hosting “THE STREET. Where the World Is Made,” a group exhibition with participation of more than 140 artists. The exhibition is on view through April 28, 2019.Curated by Hou Hanru and the curatorial team of MAXXI, “THE STREET. Where the World Is Made” showcases a host of innovative works — objects that are multicultural, polyglot, colorful, scary, and stimulating.According to the museum, “the street is a place of sharing and innovation, the principal laboratory for artists, architects, and creatives.”The artists, in this exhibition, say the story of the streets — “the real great laboratory for discussion, creation, comparison,” a place where the contemporary era is invented.More than 200 works are showcased in the exhibition, in a sequence of galleries that form a street dozens of meters long. The works presented include works of art, architectural projects, photographs, performances, site-specific interventions, and videos.“The exhibition is organized based on themes — public actions, daily life, politics, the community, innovation, the role of the institution — fundamental for understanding the new functions and identity of the modern-day street,” the museum says. “Starting from the belief that this space is the place where the world is created, it is analyzed as a manifesto of contemporary life, a scenario, and a privileged point of view, a landscape in which the creative community and citizens give life to a new community and a new world of urban creativity.”In this exhibition, the street is analyzed as a continuously mutating manifesto of contemporary life, an element of connection but also of rupture, the setting for everyday experiences such as street festivals, improvised cinema or street food.The exhibition is on view through April 28, 2019, at the MAXXI — Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo, Via Guido Reni 4A, 00196, Rome.For details, visit: http://bit.ly/2fZK0wk on the slideshow for a sneak peek of the exhibition. {C}http://bit.ly/2BwSDJ7 Louise Blouin
