Highlights – Visions at MAXXI

This exhibition prompts a dialogue among the selected works of Italian and international artists and architects present in the MAXXI collection around the theme of vision, that is, the capacity to see objective reality and transfigure it in a subjective dimension. Perceptions, intuitions and utopias are the instruments artists such as Sou Fujimoto, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Paolo Soleri, Luca Vitone, Franz West and Chen Zhen use to present us their ideas about the world and about how to change it.

Brilliant visionaries, anticipatory, destabilizing artists and contemporary architects with their very personal way of looking at and interpreting reality are able to shift our point of view and to lead us to a deeper understanding of what surrounds us. They draw inspiration from a continual need for transformation, while different their poetics share a tension towards a renewed reality in which nature and artifice coexist in harmony. The Highlights cycle is the opportunity to start a dialogue between selected works of artists and architects, on specific themes that will change from one exhibition to the next.

This first exhibition is dedicated to the visions of internationally acclaimed artists and architects. By vision we mean the ability to see the objective reality and transfigure it into a personal dimension: perceptions, intuitions and utopias are the instruments artists use to present us their ideas about the world and about how to change it. Their points of view, the philosophies that inspire them – may they be Oriental or Western, materialistic or spiritual – all reveal the wish to find a new connection, through the merging of “nature” and “artefact”, with a renewed world where we may live in perfect harmony.
