Curated by Bruna Roccasalva
Scalo Milano, Unit 1 and Unit 11
SCALO ART PAVILIONS is the project that brings contemporary art to Scalo Milano.
The mall will have two large buildings just for exhibitions of projects by contemporary artists who will be invited during the year to create and produce site-specific installations.
Starting in October, when the mall opens, SCALO ART PAVILIONS will get under way with a program, curated by Bruna Roccasalva, which will provide for two appointments at six month intervals, each devoted to two rising young stars of the Italian art scene.
The artists invited to exhibit, each at one of the two pavilions, will present installations produced with different media and techniques, but all sharing a profound reflection on the specificity of the context and the desire to stimulate interaction with the visitors to the mall.
Among the hundreds of show windows that distinguish Scalo Milano, visitors will have the pleasant surprise of encountering two windows that offer a different, special type of experience: an opportunity to explore contemporary art and enjoy it at their leisure, outside of the usual venues.
SCALO ART PAVILIONS will promote a project that investigates new ways of presenting and enjoying art, testing the possibility of its integration in unusual sites and offering a wider audience the opportunity to discover contemporary art.
The first exhibition will feature two of the most talented artists of the latest generations: Alice Ronchi and Santo Tolone.
