The Luigi Pecci Centre for Contemporary Art in Prato presents Art and the City from 20 November 2021, as well as celebrating the opening of the museum’s Urban Centre. Curated by Stefano Pezzato this exhibition pairs a wide selection of works from the museum’s collections with rare archive materials. The new exhibition was conceived to be an expression of the city of Prato, presenting an unexplored overview of the relationship between contemporary art and the urban environment.

Works by some forty Italian and international artists

Divided into three sections the exhibition includes art produced in recent decades by contemporary artists to investigate and incorporate the very fabric of the city of Prato. Paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, videos, drawings and prints from about forty Italian and international artists and groups, investigate the transformations, transfigurations and utopias of the city alongside its conflicts.

Films and conferences on the city’s culture  

The exhibition opens and closes with some explicitly Made in Prato works with the aim of reaffirming the importance and influence of contemporary artistic research within the city. The Pecci Center represents the present and the future of an extremely rich history and a proud region. The exhibition will also include new educational programmes for the public, films and conferences on the interrelations between cultural works and initiatives for the city.
