A Story for the Future – MAXXI’s First Decade

17 Feb – 29 Aug 2021

Curated by Hou Hanru

Exhibition design by Inside Outside

Historical times call for critical, contemporary exhibitions. On the occasion of the decade-long anniversary of Rome’s first museum of the contemporary arts, memory will abide by the unbound. We are thrilled to announce the launch of the new exhibition titled “A Story for the Future: The First Decade of Maxxi”, for which Inside Outside has delivered the exhibition design.

MAXXI Museum is re-visiting its archive, but it’s the visitors who will be making the content count in its encore. The museum is growing to be an inescapable access point into the feeding and friction that takes place between creative communities and the fabric of modern life.

Now, MAXXI Museum is embracing its vocation as a platform instead of a podium and calling upon the curatorial insight of the visitor. A familiarized body of work will veer towards the unexpected as the exhibition dips it into an immersive environment that could provoke unexpected affects, combinations, sensations, or forecasts.

The exhibition “A Story for the Future: MAXXI’s First Decade” will open online – it will be available to the public from 17 February 2021 – 29 August 2021.

Chronicling the pandemic

A research project that the Equilibrium Network is instigating:

They are inviting anyone and everyone who is working within the built environment to send a short video of themselves, filmed on their phones, talking about the impact that the pandemic has had on their lives, and the long-term changes that they envisage as a result, both personally and professionally.

The results will be posted on the EQN website (https://www.equilibrium-network.com and will be used as the basis for a more formal piece of research by our academic friends.

Further information can be found here: Chronicling the Pandemic
