Floating Cube | 10 years 10 artists 10 works


The Quadreria Contemporanea (Contemporary Picture Gallery) of Molteni&C showcased with a new display concept by Ron Gilad and curated by Cristiana Colli.

Floating Cube | 10 years 10 artists 10 works

Inside M&C, the large-format multicultural, plural and bilingual periodical invented by Luca Meda for 10 years has been brooding, intimately and in secret, a photographic committee, Visual Art, which counterpoints every edition, every Furnishing and Design trade fair and show.
The project was inaugurated in 2006, conceived and curated by Cristiana Colli, a gift that is inserted in the centre of the magazine, a collection that is shared, accessible, diffuse.
So the Quadreria Contemporanea was a work in progress that has manifested the experience, the idea of collection, the style of collecting, the network of collectors unpredictable, hybrid, mobile.
Now, from the M&C mega-mag, the collection arrives in Giussano, presented in a site specifically designed for Glass Cube, called “Floating Cube”, with a display concept by Ron Gilad.

“A white cube at the heart of a glass one,
floating above running water.
A room without entrance or exit,
an unexpected space for hanging art”

Ron Gilad

 

A space within an existing space, unexpected and floating on a few centimetres of water. A square volume that landed in the centre of the structure that becomes an art gallery.


There are twenty photographic works on display, with just as many Molteni&C products featured, created by Paola De Pietri (2007), Francesco Jodice (2008), Antonio Biasiucci (2009), Olimpia&Miro Zagnoli (2010), Alessandra Spranzi (2011), Barbara Probst (2012), Davide Pizzigoni (2013), Botto&Bruno (2014), Mario Carrieri (2015), Olivo Barbieri (2016).
