Fondazione Prada was created in 1993 as an outpost to analyze present times through the staging of contemporary art exhibitions as well as architecture, cinema and philosophy projects.
Thanks to the opening of this new permanent Milan venue in May 2015, the Fondazione aims to contribute more incisively to contemporary culture, sustaining the idea that art is an effective knowledge tool.
Without practicing a mere contamination between different disciplines, Fondazione Prada intends to strengthen its multidisciplinary vocation by highlighting the autonomy and specificity of each creative language.
An open flexible structure—consisting of curators, writers, filmmakers and thinkers, all invited to contribute to the elaboration and realization of new projects—will guide this new course and allow to constantly reinvent the program as well as activate a restlessly evolving intellectual process.
The Fondazione's venetian venue, first opened in 2011, continues to operate from the 18th century palazzo of Ca' Corner della Regina, where international acclaimed research shows such as "The Small Utopia" (2012), "When attitutes become form: Bern 1969/ Venice 2013" (2013), "Art or Sound" (2014) and "Portable Classic" (2015).
