Pirelli HangarBicocca

HangarBicocca is a place for contemporary art exhibitions, located in the Bicocca district of Milan, Italy. The buildings used to be a Pirelli factory reconverted into 10,900 square metres of exhibition galleries.

Currently it shows the exhibition "Architecture As Art" and "Doubt" from Carsten Höller, as part of the XXI Triennale Exhibition Milan 2016.

"Entrance". Maria Giuseppina Grasso Cannizzo has provided a system of entrance and passage between the Shed space and the space outside the Pirelli HangarBicocca.

In front is the project "Pavilon". The installation is hanging on the side of the project "Sharing".

"Roof". The roof proposed by nArchitecs for the external exhibition space is a demonstration of the concept of "almost building" on which the New York practice works: incomplete and  dynamic structures that are open to the landscape and to appropriation or completion on the part of users.

Carsten Höller - "Doubt" Exhibition. In the front: "Y" (2003); incandescent light  bulbs, digital controllers, aluminium, illuminated signs at both exits, wood, steel, mirrors. At the back: "Division Walls" (2016); neon tubes, Alucobond, aluminium, transformers.

Carsten Höller - "Doubt" Exhibition. Top Mode Africa (2013), aluminium, metal foil, cork, wood, household paint, foam sheets, paper, light bulbs, capsules.

Efêmero is the first intervention in a new program, “Outside the Cube”, dedicated to Street Art and other forms of art connected to the urban and public contexts.

During the inaugural edition of “Outside the Cube,” OSEGEMEOS – literally “the twins,” the pseudonym of brothers Gustavo and Otávio Pandolfo (born 1974, São Paulo, Brazil) – present their first major mural in Italy.
