Beatrice Trussardi launches the Beatrice Trussardi Foundation
The Beatrice Trussardi Foundation is the next chapter in the Beatrice’s mission to create arresting encounters with contemporary art in unexpected locations.
Building on her achievements, as President of Fondazione Nicola Trussardi, in producing and presenting site-specific art installations in hidden and disused sites across Milan via a ‘nomadic museum’ format, Beatrice Trussardi sets out to expand this unique model on an international level, offering a programme of ground-breaking interventions in exceptional settings worldwide, alongside pioneering research and study projects.
Placed under the artistic direction of Massimiliano Gioni, the Foundation will invite artists with a particular sensitivity to their contexts, who engage with their environments and find novel ways to surprise, entice and interact with audiences. Faithful to the long-term vision of Beatrice Trussardi, the Foundation will facilitate discoveries, encourage participation, and spark vital conversations.
For its inaugural exhibition, the Beatrice Trussardi Foundation has invited Polish artist Paweł Althamer to present an installation in a mountain hut 2000 metres above sea level in Val Fex, the centre of one of the most fascinating hiking routes in the Engadin, Switzerland.
The exhibition runs from 11 July to 29 August 2021.
