Time & Place, Milan-Turin

 

 

Location: Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Sweden

Client: Moderna Museet

Completion: April 2008

Brief: To create a layout and display for the exhibition “Time & Place, Milan-Turin 1958–68”

Starting point: A series of three connected galleries of 500m² and the 200m² lobby space outside the galleries.

 

Curated by Luca Massimo Barbero, this was the second in a series of three exhibitions celebrating the Moderna Museet’s 50th Anniversary. It was the first to explore the dynamic artistic developments in the two neighbouring but always competing cities. The visual theme that ran through aspects of the entire installation was a cardboard like colour stemming from the Arte Povera’s aesthetics, sometimes as paint and sometimes as unfinished MDF used for vitrines and architectural elements.
