FONDAZIONE NICOLA TRUSSARDI

Fondazione Nicola Trussardi is a non-profit nomadic museum that brings contemporary art directly into historical spaces and monuments throughout the city of Milan: its activities, which are always completely free of charge to the public, include two largescale exhibitions a year, along with more flexible projects such as publications and events.
The foundation sees the city as a storehouse of inspiration that is just waiting to be discovered, made up of art and culture, opportunities for dialogue, ideas to be promoted, and a wellspring of creative energy. Over the last seven years, Fondazione Nicola Trussardi has rediscovered some of the most important historic buildings in downtown Milan, and through its exhibitions, has once again made them accessible to the general public; examples include Palazzo Citterio, Palazzo Dugnani, Palazzo Litta, Palazzina Appiani at the Arena Civica, the former depot at Porta Genova station, the Institute for the Blind, Palazzo della Ragione, and the central octagon in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele.

The artists' visions temporarily transform these locations into mechanisms for the dissemination of images; the foundation has presented ambitious projects that have left an indelible mark on the city's collective memory, such as the figures of hanged children in Piazza XXIV Maggio by Maurizio Cattelan, the giant man floating over Parco Sempione by Pawel Althamer, the large monochromatic zoo by Paola Pivi, the giant tree by Urs Fischer, the optimistic yet sarcastic neon sign by Martin Creed in Piazza del Duomo, the living sculptures by Tino Sehgal at Galleria d'Arte Moderna, the car and trailer that seemed to burst through the mosaics of the central octagon in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, by Michael Elmgreen & Ingar Dragset, the slowness of Tacita Deanʼs films, the rawness of Paul McCarthy, a legend for contemporary art brought to Italy for the first time by the Trussardi Foundation, and the videos by swiss celebrated artist Pipilotti Rist. The foundation recently launched What Good Is The Moon?, a book that collects all projects relealized from 2003 until 2009 published by Hatje Cantz.The foundation recently launched What Good Is The Moon?, a book that collects all projects relealized from 2003 until 2009 published by Hatje Cantz. The foundation also fosters dialogue with other national and international institutions: over the years, it has undertaken projects in partnership with the Venice Biennale – in the last edition the projects supported by the foundation receveid two special mentions from the International jury - Tate Modern in London, Kunsthaus Zurich, Carnegie International in Pittsburgh, Museo Morandi in Bologna, and the Frieze Art Fair in London.

Though Fondazione Nicola Trussardi, the Trussardi Group channels its resources and skills towards creating opportunities for cultural enrichment and towards making the most innovative work in contemporary art accessible to everyone. Fondazione Nicola Trussardi presents the public with a gift of art and culture, bringing them into every aspect of daily life.

#FAULTLINES, the first major solo exhibition in Italy by Jennifer Allora & Guillermo Calzadilla. In the magnificent spaces of Palazzo Cusani Allora & Calzadilla present an impressive selection of recent work, most of it never shown before in Italy, as well as new pieces created specifically for the show. We encounter a succession of sounds, sculptures, performances, videos, and images that intertwine with the history of the site and the story of our times, disrupting them only to piece them back together with a narrative rhythm that alternates surprise, poetry, humor and epiphany.

Allora & Calzadilla have developed an experimental and interdisciplinary body of work, linking different elements and languages. Their practice investigates pivotal concepts of our time such as nationalism, power, freedom, participation, and social change. This approach is what inspired the title for their exhibition with the Fondazione Nicola Trussardi: #FaultLines, the rifts in the earth that form between two shifting masses of rock. In Allora and Calzadilla's work, these Fault Lines are taken as points of departure for an exploration of physical and symbolic borders and junctures. #FAULTLINES - Opening october 22 - Palazzo Cusani, #Milan #artetrussardi
