Milan open-air museum: contemporary art
for the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall
From Monday 9 to Sunday 22 November, in an original exhibition in the historic center of Milan, contemporary art becomes the protagonist of an event that transforms the city into a collective exhibition and a creative and "open-air" workshop: sculptures, installations and works of video art inspired by the 20th Anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. A cultural event promoted by the Consular Corps of Milan and Lombardy, which looks to art as a community opportunity to share, beyond any boundaries, the values of freedom, dialogue and alliance among peoples.
Milan, October 2009 - From Monday 9 to Sunday 22 November 2009 Milan, capital of the contemporary celebrates the twentieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall: Piazza Fontana, Piazza della Scala, Via Larga, Via Dante, Piazza San Babila, Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Galleria del Corso, Palazzo Reale, Piazza Cadorna, Piazza Duca d'Aosta, Piazza Castello are transformed into a large open-air museum to host contemporary works of art, including sculptures, installations, video art and photographic exhibition paths that speak of walls and outdated borders, meetings and lack of communication, of union and solitude, of freedom and alliance among peoples. Each with an original, complex and articulate vocabulary, sometimes impertinent and pungent, sometimes thoughtful and conceptual.
Promoted and sponsored by the Consular Corps of Milan and Lombardy, Plaza is an 'open air' art event, but above all it is a community opportunity to share, beyond all borders, the values of freedom and dialogue between peoples. Milan, which, after New York, boasts the largest presence of consular representatives in the world - more than a hundred foreign consulates - becomes for the anniversary of the fall of the Wall, a 'place par excellence' meeting, aggregation and confrontation between the peoples, beyond every frontier.
