MACRO – Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Roma
2012 kicks off by MACRO (Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome) taking a new course under the direction of Bartolomeo Pietromarchi. Based on a wide and various exhibition program, following an innovative concept, the museum represents a main center for artistic production and research on contemporary arts. The aim was born by the need to review the artist’s role as a main actor of the museum’s activities. The revitalization and enhancement of each new spaces of the MACRO are the cornerstones of this course. This is true not only for the exhibition spaces, but also and especially for those spaces whose function and vitality are expressed through the public’s presence. It is to the public itself that Odile Decq’s 2010 architectural intervention (awarded the Golden Lion at the Venice Architecture Biennale in 1996), above the Peroni factory, is addressed, being situated in a privileged location.
As well as this location the MACRO Testaccio space was also completed, located in the same Roman district.
