Fondazione Furla has teamed with Milan’s Museo del Novecento, which will be the foundation’s partner in the development of its artistic program for the 2017-18 two-year period. Museo del Novecento focuses on modern and contemporary art.
Established in Bologna in 2008 by Furla president Giovanna Furlanetto, last June Fondazione Furla assigned its artistic direction to Milan’s contemporary art center Peep-Hole, founded by art expert and curator Vincenzo de Bellis.
Fondazione Furla and Museo del Novecento will organize a rich schedule of exhibitions, especially aimed at creating a dialogue between modern and contemporary artists. The project will make its debut in September.
“The decision to tie the knot with an Italian public institution confirms Fondazione Furla’s continuous purpose to play an active role in the politics of promotion and development of our country,” said Peep-Hole director and curator Bruna Roccasalva. “The work done in the past 15 years to support Italian young talents now evolves into a project channeling this help to the institutional sphere through a collaboration aimed at enhancing institutions’ role in the promotion of art initiatives.”
The program will be integrated with a range of activities, including talks, conferences, workshops and roundtables, aimed at generating a deeper engagement with the museum’s visitors.
