Paola Pivi: World Record

Charging

Rome’s contemporary art central base is the MAXXI museum, found in the not so-known part of Northern Rome. But its actually part of a whole network of powerhouse cultural institutions that have been yet to be admired by Rome’s tourists. The MAXXI is a contemporary art museum that opened in 2010 inside of a suspended concrete structure designed by famed architect, Zaha Hadid. Over the last decade, the MAXXI has bloomed into a community space, where visitors wind around families and friends hanging out in the courtyard, creating a sort of organic improvised perfromance art piece right outside the museum’s entrance.
MAXXI often hosts site specific installations. This time, the works of Pola Pivi, born in 1971 and winner of the Leone d’Oro at the Venice biennele 1971, will take over the space. From gigantism to minimal interventions, her works are clever manipulations of space. Paola Pivi’s art takes over spaces transforming them into contexts and artistic moments characterized by precise material and formal characteristics, but also playful, ironic and surprising .
With this project, MAXXI continues its research and enhancement of significant Italian artists in the international art scene, promoting their presence and experiences to the general public.
