MACRO museum to display artworks from the UniCredit Art Collection
An exhibition at the MACRO, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome, from December 20 to May 4, entitled "Percorsi nel contemporaneo" ("Pathways through the contemporary"), will include notable works from the UniCredit Art Collection that the museum retains on permanent loan.
The exhibition will present some 50 pieces from the MACRO's permanent collection in a provocative examination of a debate on abstract art that was inspired in the early 1950s by Origine, the group of artists founded by Mario Ballocco, Giuseppe Capogrossi and Ettore Colla. The group advocated a return to art's origins through the use of simple forms and primary colors.
The show represents a special opportunity for the public to view some distinctive pieces from the UniCredit Art Collection, including work by artists such as Armin Linke, Adrian Paci, and Grazia Toderi, as well as the first permanent installation in Rome by Daniel Buren, which was made possible by the partnership between UniCredit and the MACRO.
UniCredit continues to support art and to share our collection with a wide audience because we deeply believe that celebrating and advancing major cultural initiatives is an important undertaking for the sustainable development of the communities in which we live and work.
Enjoy the exhibition!
