Fondazione Prada

Fondazione Prada is a cultural institution, co-chaired by Miuccia Prada and Patrizio Bertelli since 1993. In 2015 it opened its Milan permanent headquarters conceived by OMA/Rem Koolhaas in a former distillery dating back to the 1910s. This transformation led to a campus of post-industrial and new spaces where a rich spatial array encourages a cultural program mainly focused on contemporary art, but also open to other disciplines. In 2016 Osservatorio, Fondazione Prada’s outpost dedicated to photography, was launched in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, in the centre of Milan. Since 2011 another permanent venue of Fondazione Prada has been active in Venice in the 18th-century palazzo Ca’ Corner della Regina. From 1993 to 2014 Fondazione Prada’s activities have included monographic commissions developed by international artists, contemporary philosophy conferences, extensive research exhibitions and initiatives related to the fields of cinema and architecture. With the opening of a permanent cultural complex in Milan, Fondazione Prada’s experimental vocation and its long-lasting engagement towards the correlation between different languages has been expanded. This renewed commitment has been embodied by historic exhibitions such as “Serial Classic” and “Post Zang Tumb Tuuum”, new collaborative projects with renowned artists such as Robert Gober, Theaster Gates and Goshka Macuga, in-depht retrospectives, performing arts projects, film festivals, and projects that explored exchanges and dialogues between arts, cinema, media production and technology, such as Francesco Vezzoli’s show “TV 70”, the multimedia exhibition “The Boat is Leaking. The Captain Lied.”, and Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s VR installation “CARNE y ARENA”.
