Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna is happy to be presenting Mika Rottenberg’s first Italian institutional solo exhibition, curated by Lorenzo Balbi. This Argentine born artist who grew up in Israel and is now based in New York is a centre stage player on the contemporary world scene. She will be appropriating the imposing volumes of the Sala delle Ciminiere on the museum’s ground floor to animate ten of her most recent productions-sculpture objects and video installations famous for their sarcastic and bizarre narrative register.

Tate Liverpool
June 14, 2019 – November 10, 2019

Join us for the first, major UK exhibition of artist and activist Keith Haring (1958-1990). Visitors can enjoy more than 85 artworks including large, vibrant paintings, drawings and sculptures.

A part of the legendary New York art scene of 1980s, Haring was a champion of his generation’s counterculture. He was inspired by graffiti, pop art and underground club culture. Haring worked with like-minded artists such as Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat. All were interested in creating art for the many. They used new media and public spaces, not galleries to do so.

Vanke 3D City by MVRD
Location: Shenzhen, China
Status: Ongoing

The ambition for Vanke Group’s headquarters building in Shenzhen was not only to provide office space for the real estate company’s own staff, but to form a vibrant mixed-use city block containing leasable offices, retail space, a restaurant, a hotel, and plentiful outdoor spaces. This program was proposed to occupy two lots separated by a road. In response to this condition, MVRDV proposed a stack of eight blocks that connects these two plots and bridges the road – a unique and forward-thinking design feature which has received support from the city government – to create a single 250-metre-tall building with a total of 167,000 square meters of floor space.

Outside is an independent streetwear brand founded by Maurizio Assisi, a young designer from Brescia with a passion for art, graphics and communication. The brand deals both creating graphic images and printing them on t-shirts, sweatshirts and accessories. The logo takes origin from simple geometric figures; the square, the triangle and the circle, elementary forms that made it possible to create a simple and clean mark that, although its simplicity, could express and evoke more complex concepts.

CHICAGO SPIRE TOWER
Location: Chicago, United States
Status: Finished

Proposed for a prominent 2.2-acre site on North Water Street, adjacent to Lake Shore Drive and near the entrance to Navy Pier, the Chicago Spire Tower will rise to a height of 1458 feet (444 meters) at its roof and approximately 2000 feet (610 meters) at the tip of its spire, making it the tallest building in the United States. Calatrava’s tall and slender design form with glass facade that appears to ripple downward in waves, like the folds of a cloak swirling around a figure is achieved by means of a structural innovation.
