Office Project Room has just inaugurated in Milan - with the beautiful exhibition David Simpson / Francesco Bertocco - a new reality that marries the functions and needs of a business office with the cultural ones of a space for art, where the exhibiting and teaching activities cohabit with the entrepreneurial and working experience linked to the world of finance and real-estate.
Francesco Macchi, the collector and entrepreneur who created the project with the artist Matteo Cremonesi, turned to Engel & Völkers Milano to find the right place for this innovative project, housed in a splendid two-level office with a private garden of 120 square meters. The exhibition proposals are organized according to a precise curatorial format, the "Dialogues", implemented in this space / territory that manages to make the production of emerging artists easily meet, whose research, although significant, is still in the process of being affirmed, with works of well-known masters, coming from loans from private collections, galleries and foundations. The aim is to encourage and support the growth of young artists and the consequent interest from collectors, curators and foundations, as well as expanding the public interest in contemporary art through exhibitions, educational tools and training. The hybrid space is aided by it, offering itself with ease to artistic contamination in the "Bureau" project in collaboration with PHROOM MAGAZINE: a bi-monthly rotating exhibition changes the photographic images in the offices of the company "G.P.M.srl",
thus reconfiguring the environment and arranging the works to an unusual fruition, curious starting point to establish new relationships with the aesthetics promoted by the culture of work, and to investigate the coexistence and collaboration of different realities / identities in space. After the summer, in the appointment scheduled for September, the beautiful private garden will also be involved, with the installation of a sculptural intervention that every three months will see the work of a young sculptor related to the peculiar characteristics of the garden itself and the context that hosts it.
