Open Museum, Open City at Maxxi

Till 30 November 2014 Open Museum, Open City at Maxxi

An exhibition hosted in the entire museum, an extraordinary opportunity to examine some crucial topics of our times by means of “sound”.

The project offers a challenging opportunity to rethink the relationship between artistic production, architectural intervention and participation of the public. It reflects the complex context of the city of Rome, as a contemporary “foro” for urban transformation and social-cultural experiments.

Sound has been playing a key but special role in the exploration of reality,
such a context in order to create a laboratory of an open museum,
a condensed sample of an open city

From Bill Fontana to Ryoji Ikeda, from Lee Mingway to Carsten Nicolai, from Cevdet Erek to Jean Baptiste Ganne: the exhibition will transform the museum into a performative stage for dialogues amongst different voices and claims for new social projects in radical manners by “emptying the building” and filling it with the sounds.

Integral part of the exhibition will be the performative events calendar: music, dance, theatre, cinema, story-telling and poem reading to improvisational gatherings and speaker’s corner style “agitations”.
