For the first time, the Accademia di Brera opens its classrooms and studios to the public, offering a slice of daily life in the Academy through an exhibitive project uniting all institutions of the Palazzo di Brera in a unique journey through ancient and contemporary art. The itinerary has been conceived by Visual Cultures and Curatorial Practices—a specialist course of Brera Academy—in collaboration with Zerynthia Association for Contemporary Art.

In this context, the following site-specific installations of contemporary art have been created all over the 18th building, located in the centre of Milan:

Pinacoteca di Brera
One of the most famous Italian collections of ancient art, comparable to those of Mantegna, Piero della Francesca, Raffaello. Features installations by Luciano Fabro, Alberto Garutti, Jannis Kounellis, Giulio Paolini and Gerhard Richter.

Braidense Library
Gerhard Richter‘s EIS book, showing all processes of its realization.

Astronomical Observatory, Cupola Schiapparelli (1875)
Featuring an installation by Marco Bagnoli.

Orto Botanico di Brera (Botanical Garden)
Created by Maria Teresa d’Austria in 1774, the Garden will feature an installation by Alvin Curran dedicated to John Cage, H.H.Lim and Michelangelo Pistoletto.

Napoleonic Hall
At the Edge of the Painting. Brera in the Sixties/Seventies, with works by Agnetti, Alviani, Bonalumi, Castellani, Ferrari, Fontana, Grisi, Manzoni, Munari and Varisco.

Curated by the Educational and Communication Department, Accademia di Brera

Books edited by Johan & Levi, Milan
