1 Oct-31 Dec 2019. MACRO on Via Nizza will be free to visitors for 15 months as part of an experimental art project, known as Asilo (meaning refuge), under the direction of curator Giorgo De Finis.
Asilo will see the participation of 250 contemporary artists who will be given space to work, perform and interact with the public. The programme envisages the creation of 400 videoart works, 1,000 lessons, 60 Saturday night concerts and 900 self-portraits.
De Finis, known to many as the founder of Rome's MAAM street art museum, says the traditional exhibition format will be abandoned with the goal of transforming MACRO into a "living museum."
The artists expected to participate in the first months of Asilo include big names such as Michelangelo Pistoletto, Pablo Echaurren and Wim Wenders.
The series of 180 lectures will also feature international artists such as Claire Bishop, Mary Ann Caws, Don Thompson, Calum Storrie, Sally Price and Paul Werner.
The project launches with a party, open to the public, on 30 September. For details see website.
