“Il Giardino dei Lauri” is the new location dedicated to Contemporary Art created by the art collectors Angela and Massimo Lauro to exhibit part of their personal collection. The Lauro Collection was started in 1990 and includes approximately 300 works of art today. Collecting the work of the most representative artists, protagonists on the national and international artistic scene, the exhibit represents a narrative itinerary through the most updated research in the field of visual art. The display is hosted inside the 650 square meters of the industrial facility and in a garden. It is animated with 70 installations of new talents from a completely new generation. The artistic selection in the exhibition, which mainly includes artists coming from Italy, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland and Poland, sees names of classical artists—such as: Takashi Murakami, Mariko Mori, Roxy Paine, Michael Heizer, Rudolf Stingel, Ugo Rondinone, Tim Noble & Sue Webster, Massimo
Bartolini and Maurizio Cattelan—side by side to a nucleus of authors born between the end of the 1960s and the beginning of the 1980s, who more recently have appeared on the scene receiving important international appreciation such as Aaron Young, Eric Wesley, Dash Snow, Piero Golia, Matthew Monahan, Piotr Uklanski, Urs Fisher, Gary Webb, Martin Creed and Jonathan Meese.
