For the second year running, the Nuovo Forno del Pane Outdoor Edition returns, confirming its reach in the six cultural districts of the metropolitan city of Bologna.

Overview

Developed from the innovative experience of the Nuovo Forno del Pane, promoted in 2020 by MAMbo - Museo d'Arte Moderna di Bologna to support the artistic community during the Covid-19 emergency by offering them a space for research and production, the Nuovo Forno del Pane Outdoor Edition gives the six candidates, selected through public notice, the opportunity to develop individual and shared artistic projects interacting with the territory in which they are hosted, for a period of three months. The project is promoted by the Municipality and the Metropolitan City of Bologna, with the support of Fondazione Innovazione Urbana. Nuovo Forno del Pane Outdoor Edition is curated by Lorenzo Balbi, Caterina Molteni e Sabrina Samorì and coordinated by Giulia Pezzoli.

Practical Info

Applications will be examined by a Commission chaired by the Head of the Modern and Contemporary Art Area of the Bologna Civic Museums Sector and composed of expert members from within the MAMbo staff.
