Open Museum, Open City

The Museo Nazionale delle Arti del XXI secolo (MAXXI) uses sounds to examine contemporary Rome, its architecture, artistic output and people.

The museum is transformed into a platform for dialogue between artists and filled with sounds ranging from the water flowing under Rome and the noises associated with the modern city, to the breakdown of a piece of music into individual notes.

This stimulating multimedia installation also includes a calendar of performance events incorporating music, dance, theatre, film, storytelling, readings, poetry and impromptu meetings in “Speakers' Corner” style.

Participating artists include Bill Fontana, Ryoji Ikeda, Lee Mingway, Carsten Nicolai, Cevdet Erek and Jean Baptiste Ganne.
