John and I visited MACRO (Museo d'Arte Contemporanea di Roma) in via Nizza in the Salario neighbourhood of Rome last Tuesday. Thank heavens our friend, Mariella, was available to guide us there by bus. It's a bit out of the way for the inexperienced tourist.
Several exhibitions are on view at the same time. This visit there was a show of Art in Rome from 1960-1980 from the museum's permanent collections,
a show of the sculpture of Japanese artist, Hidetoshi Nagasawa, who has been a resident of Italy since 1967,
and shows of resident artists - Luca Trevisiani
and Brian Bress.
Like Zaha Hadid's MAXXI, Odile Decq's MACRO is as interesting as a structure alone to justify a visit. Thanks for being our guide, Mariella!
