On 13th September 2009 in Città della Pieve (Perugia, Italy) will open Il Giardino dei Lauri: a new location dedicated to contemporary art, created by Angela e Massimo Lauro, two art collectors from Neaples, to show part of their private collection.

The exhibition of Il Giardino dei Lauri, will present the most representative group of European and world talents of the new generation artists: a selection of 71 artworks where with the more “classical” artists like Takashi Murakami, Mariko Mori, Roxy Paine, Michael Heizer, Ugo Rondinone, the group Tim Noble & Sue Webster, or the italians Massimo Bartolini and Maurizio Cattelan, there will be the artworks of the most representative European and international artists under 40 like Aaron Young, Eric Wesley, Dash Snow, Piero Golia, Matthew Monahan, Piotr Uklanski, Urs Fischer and Gary Webb.

The evocative location of Il Giardino dei Lauri, with its garden and the industrial building of more than 650 m2, renovated by the architects Alberto Sifola and Vincenzo Sposato, provide a brilliant platform for the oversized pieces.

The non-profit organization Il Giardino dei Lauri, that will run the location, will provide an on-going commissions and new acquisitions activity during the year; moreover will be presented different external artistic projects and events, like the program of summer performances curated by Art At Work, in order to become the contemporary art center for innovative art performances and exhibitions promoting the movement across the Tuscan-Umbrian territory.

Artists: Darren Almond, Richard Aldrich, David Altmejd, Kristin Baker, Tom Burr, Massimo Bartolini, Ashley Bickerton, John Bock, Bozidar Bradza, Nahon Brigitte, Valentin Carron, Maurizio Cattelan, Martin Creed, Jen DeNike, Urs Fischer, Fischerspooner, Fischli & Weiss, Piero Golia, Mark Handforth, Michael Heizer, Thomas Helbig, Christian Holstad, Martin Kersels, Jim Lambie, Nate Lowman, Domenico Antonio Mancini, Jonathan Meese, Matthew Monahan, Mariko Mori, Dave Muller, Takashi Murakami, Tim Noble & Sue Webster, Roxy Paine, Jorge Pardo, Paul Pfeiffer, Anselm Reyle, Tal R, Stephen G.
