Torre, the building marking the completion of Fondazione Prada’s Milan venue is finally open to the public, marking the opening comes Atlas, showcasing the Prada Collection.
Atlas is a dialogue between couple Miuccia Prada and Germano Celant hosting works from the Prada Collection displayed in a sequence of environments incorporating solos and confrontations, created through assonances or contrasts, between artists such as Carla Accardi and Jeff Koons, Walter De Maria, Mona Hatoum and Edward Kienholz and Nancy Reddin Kienholz, Michael Heizer and Pino Pascali, William N. Copley and Damien Hirst, John Baldessari and Carsten Höller.
The group of exhibited artworks, realized between 1960 and 2016, represents a possible mapping of the ideas and visions which have guided the creation of the collection and the collaborations with the artists that have contributed to the activities of the foundation throughout the years.
“Atlas” therefore traces an evolving path between the personal and the institutional, open to temporary and thematic interventions, special projects and events, with possible integrations from other collections and institutions.
Fondazione Prada’s Milan was first unveiled (before completion) in May 2015 and designed by Rem Koolhaas with Chris van Duijn and Federico Pompignoli from architecture firm OMA.
