RETROFUTURE is a in-progress exhibition devoted to rethinking the museum’s collection in the perspective of a pathway aimed at the newer generations, where different timeframes overlap to investigate the role of a public collection of contemporary art in the 21st century.


The spaces contain the photographic portrait of the  storerooms of MACRO’s collection made by Giovanna Silva and presented by means of giant wallpapers that now become the context that gradually hosts new works by the invited artists, for a collection that grows over time.
