Independent spaces and Museums in Italy | Introducing Lorenzo Balbi’s talk at Harvard

Independent spaces in Italy are an increasingly recognized reality within the art system. For an accurate research on the Italian art scene, it is essential to consider their programs that stand out for experimentation and the creation of new languages.

At the same time, the Museum is now responsible for presenting the results of these researches, and is part of a policy of acquiring new works by new generation Italian artists, with the aim of promoting and enhancing them. 

If we consider these spaces as authentic hotbeds of intellectual production and experimentation necessary for the cultural fabric of a territory, how and on what level is it possible to dialogue with them? How can we encourage seminal artistic and curatorial practices? How can we rethink the margins of a collection by hypothesizing a new and closer dialogue between historicized and more recent artists?
