The collectivity project

Olafur Eliasson

Ottagono, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, Milan
April 14–May 8, 2020


From Tuesday, April 14, to Friday, May 8, 2020, Fondazione Nicola Trussardi presents The collectivity project (2005), a participatory installation by the Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson (b. 1967). The installation—featuring an imaginary cityscape built by the public—is a site-specific artwork presented in the Ottagono of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, a prominent location in the city of Milan, on the occasion of Milano Art Week and during Salone del Mobile, Milan’s Design Week. For this project, the Fondazione Nicola Trussardi returns to the Ottagono after seventeen years, where its nomadic museum activities began in 2003, under the Presidency of Beatrice Trussardi and the Artistic Directorship of Massimiliano Gioni.
