Art in Milan: 5 events you should not miss!

Benedetta Cerri

In the rush for your Christmas gifts and never a moment for you?

No problem, let's all take a deep breath and make things easier.

We'll do something for you, something useful that will enrich your time outside the office and make your days even more productive. Milan is a fantastic city, full of interesting events and initiatives. But where and when to find them? Often we just don't know or are too lazy to take 2 minutes and make short research.

For this reason we have prepared a small calendar of events and exhibitions specifically for every need: from photography lovers to those more inclined to contemporary Art, sculpture and the great classics of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, you will have the opportunity to experience Art in all its forms.

Now you just have to pick up a piece of paper and a pen!

 

Training Humans: a show for the mind and the eyes, for lovers of photography and artificial intelligence


Where
: Osservatorio Fondazione Prada, Milano
When: until 24 February 2020

 

An exhibition to understand how the cameras see us, yes Training Humans, is the first major photographic exhibition dedicated to training images, born from the idea of Kate Crawford, professor, and scholar in the field of AI, and Trevor Paglen, artist and searcher. The exhibition contains a collection of photographs used by scientists to teach AI systems how to "see" and classify the world.

The exhibition aims to show not only how machines classify us, but also to teach us how to interpret that vision and understand how to find a space within it.

"The greatest potential transformation inherent in these systems is to think that we can change what social relationships mean and how they work."

The Spitzmaus sarcophagus and other treasures: for those who have an unconventional vision of Art


Where: Fondazione Prada, Milano
When: until 13 January 2020

 

undefined

An exhibition that invites us to reflect on the act of collecting and challenges the traditional canons defined by the galleries to propose a new conception of its audience.
The exhibition includes 538 works and objects selected by film director Wes Anderson (Houston, 1969) and illustrator, designer, and writer Juman Malouf. The exhibition brings together: objects, portraits of children, nobles and ordinary people, instruments for measuring time and natural subjects such as gardens, meteorites, and animals, presented both as scientific findings and as artistic representations.

 

La pelle degli oggetti: for those who want to see things outside of their outer shell


Where
: Galleria Milano, Milano
When: until 9 December 2019

 

The exhibition by Giovanna Oberti was created to study the process of the gaze by investigating the subtle link between visible and invisible matter. The exhibition includes the presence of objects entirely covered with the graphite that the artist has obtained with the sole use of a pencil. Graphite would almost act as a shield to give them a sculptural value, amplified by the base on which they rest. This is where the misunderstanding arises: because they are fruits of nature, ephemeral, and therefore subject to the decay of time.

A leaf-shaped animal draws the hand: for those who care about nature


Where
Pirelli HangarBicocca, Milano
When: until 19 January 2020

Pirelli HangarBicocca presents the first exhibition of Daniel Steegmann Mangrané in Italy. More than twenty works deal with ecological issues related to the dialectic between man and nature. The artist investigates the relationship between man and society and because he is struck by the biodiversity of the Brazilian rainforest, he opens up a series of reflections on the potential disappearance of this ecosystem, involving the public in an intimate confrontation with nature.

 

Leonardo Da Vinci in all its forms: for lovers of the great classics


Where
: Cenacolo Vinciano, Musei del Castello Sforzesco e la Sala delle Asse, Pinacoteca di Brera, la Pinacoteca Ambrosiana e il Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci, Milano
When: until 12 January 2020

 

Leonardo was one of the most interesting and multifaceted figures of the entire Renaissance. He managed to apply his great talents to the most varied fields: from painting to sculpture, engineering and architecture, winning works in the most important courts of Italy.
Milan was a very important city for the artist where he spent the most prolific period of his life.

So, to celebrate the figure of this artist, Milan hosts a series of exhibitions in his honor in which you can admire the beauty of his masterpieces but also the ingenuity behind his scientific discoveries and in the field of engineering. The museums involved will be: the Cenacolo Vinciano, the Castello Sforzesco Museums, the Sala delle Asse, the Pinacoteca di Brera, the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana and the Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci.

These are just some of the initiatives that Milan has in store for you, but it is still an excellent starting point!
