Premio MAXXI 2014

The Premio MAXXI, founded to support the young generation of Italian artists, has now reached its third edition, won by Rossella Biscotti (2010) and Giorgio Andreotta Calò (2012) in the past two editions. This year the winner will be announced on June 13, when the jury meets to evaluate all the projects.

The exhibition, curated by Giulia Ferracci, moves about in MAXXI’s spaces starting from Untitled (2001–2014) by Micol Assaël that suggests a reflection on the theme of physical space and its unconscious.

The School of Narrative Dance, Rome (2011–2014) by Marinella Senatore, is a traveling school free of charge whose lessons’ experiences will flow into a theater-dance performance.

Per comandare all’aria (2014) by Linda Fregni Nagler is a reflection on time, on suspension, on the condition of absolute uncertainty.

San Siro (2014) by Yuri Ancarani is a reading of the world of football as poetic as it is savage, revealing its hidden side: a reflection on the spectacularization of the game itself.

Based on these works the jury will choose the winner and the work chosen will become part of MAXXI’s permanent collection. A monographic publication will be dedicated to the winning artist.

Jury members include Anna Mattirolo, Director of MAXXI Arte and commissioner of the Prize, Hanru Hou, Artistic Director of MAXXI, Fabio Cavallucci, Director of the Centro per l’Arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci in Prato, Massimiliano Gioni, Artistic Director of the Fondazione Nicola Trussardi in Milan, Associate Director and Director of Exhibitions of the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, the artist Giuseppe Penone and Susan Pfeffer, Artistic Director of the Kunsthalle Fridericianum in Kassel.
