Art Library


Ghigos Ideas designed this library in Maxxi, Rome, introducing some contemporary art.

Project description:

Is it possible to put contemporary art in alphabetical order? Can you file it?

How tell it to an exhibition audience?

Perhaps thinking of an exhibition that is also an archive, a special archive, like an artwork into artworks which allows to approach art in a different way.

It is an open and generous archive, where you can live a learning experience according to personal approach, and reinvent it each time with different materials.

In a timeless library are on stage the story of the DOCVA archive and the purposes of the MAXXI museum, in a dualism between tradition and contemporaneity that is also one of the interpretations of the space.

This encounter is embodied by a graphic: a big anamorphic sign fills part of the room. It is only possible to comprehend it entirely from the entrance, anywhere else it just looks like a wide collection of fragments and colored patterns scattered all over spaces and furnitures.
