THE STREET. Where the World Is Made

LA STRADA. Dove si crea il mondo

Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo (MAXXI), Rome

Jusqu’au 28 avril 2019


Curated by Hou Hanru and the curatorial team of MAXXI

The street as a place of sharing and innovation, the principal laboratory for artists, architects and creatives.

More than 140 artists and over 200 works to compose the multicultural, polyglot, colorful, scary, stimulating, deafening story of the streets of the whole world, the real great laboratory for discussion, creation, comparison, where the contemporary era is invented.

Works of art, architectural projects, photographs, performances, site-specific interventions and videos welcome visitors to a sequence of galleries that form a street dozens of metres long.

The exhibition is organised based on themes – public actions, daily life, politics, the community, innovation, the role of the institution – fundamental for understanding the new functions and identity of the modern-day street.
Starting from the belief that this space is the place where the world is created, it is analysed as a manifesto of contemporary life, a scenario, and a privileged point of view, a landscape in which the creative community and citizens give life to a new community and a new world of urban creativity.

The street is analysed as a continuously mutating manifesto of contemporary life, an element of connection but also of rupture, the setting for everyday experiences such as street festivals, improvised cinema or street food.
