Reopening from 21 May 2020
Collezione Maramotti is pleased to announce that it will reopening to the public on Thursday, 21 May 2020, while limiting admission to comply with social distancing regulations.
The permanent collection can be visited by ten people at a time, as can the gallery housing the temporary exhibition by Svenja Deininger that is currently on view. Only visitors wearing face masks will be admitted. Visits to the permanent collection will continue to be accompanied by a staff member and must be booked in advance, on our website or over the phone; they start at the following hours: 3 pm on Thursdays and Fridays; 10:30 am and 3 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Admission to the temporary exhibition is free of charge during the opening hours of the collection, with the same social distancing restrictions in effect: 2:30 pm - 6:30 pm on Thursdays and Fridays, 10:30 am - 6:30 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
The Svenja Deininger exhibition Two Thoughts will be extended until 6 December 2020. These new paintings by Deininger, conceived specifically for Collezione Maramotti, are shown in dialogue with four paintings from the 1920s by avant-garde Polish artist Władysław Strzemiński, on loan from Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź.
The exhibition Mollino/Insides, with paintings by Enoc Perez and photographs by Brigitte Schindler and Carlo Mollino, has been rescheduled for the autumn and will be on view starting Sunday, 4 October 2020. During the weeks in which it was closed to the public, Collezione Maramotti remained active online, sharing new content, information and stories, and working to forge connections that will continue in the future.
In recent news: thanks to our longstanding partnership with Fondazione I Teatri Reggio Emilia and the kind permission of the dance companies that have appeared at Collezione Maramotti over the years for Festival Aperto, full recordings of some past performances have been made available on our YouTube channel, starting with Trisha Brown Dance Company and continuing with Saburo Teshigawara/KARAS and Hofesh Shechter/Shechter Junior.
Also in the field of dance, a partnership has been formed with Fondazione Nazionale della Danza/Aterballetto and La Toscanini to develop a choreographic and musical (video)creation titled The Other Side that will be shown on the RAI 5 channel on 25 June 2020. A work from the permanent collection, Luisa Rabbia’s Love, will be featured in this new production.
Meanwhile, our exploration of art will continue online. On Collezione Maramotti’s Facebook and Instagram pages, you’ll find our #paroledartista series of short videos where artists talk about themselves and their work; a journey through our past exhibitions for the Fotografia Europea festival; the treasured contents of our library, and much, much more.
We look forward to seeing you!
