Rosa Barba, Rossella Biscotti, Gianluca and Massimiliano De Serio and Piero Golia, all artists under 40 years old, are the finalists in the first edition of the Italian Contemporary Art Prize. Through to 20 March MAXXI will be devoting an exhibition to the artists with site-specific installations designed and produced for the occasion. An international jury will announce the winner on 3 December, with the artist’s work being acquired by the MAXXI Arte collection. In all of the projects, recent Italian history and the burning issues of the moment are combined with more intimate themes, in a continuous alternation of idioms and dialogues between art and architecture.
