Since 1993 Fondazione Prada’s activities have analyzed intentions and relevance through an evolution of projects. In twenty years of activities solo shows devoted to Italian and international artists, philosophy conferences, architecture exhibitions and film festivals have been presented in Milan.
The Fondazione also organized special projects and art exhibitions in Venice and other international cities such as Paris, London, Seoul and Tokyo.
In 2011 Fondazione Prada unveiled a new exhibition space in Venice in the 18th-century palazzo Ca’ Corner della Regina, where important research exhibitions have been presented.
On 9 May 2015 its new permanent Milan venue, conceived by architecture firm OMA led by Rem Koolhaas, opened to the public. The compound develops on an overall surface of 19.000 square metres/205,000 square feet and expands the repertoire of spatial typologies in which art can be exhibited and shared with the public.
Characterized by an articulated architectural configuration which combines seven existing buildings with three new structures, it is the result of the transformation of a distillery dating back to the 1910’s.
Fondazione Prada new Milan venue offers new opportunities to widen and enrich a plurality of disciplines and languages, keeping art as the main instrument of working and learning.
