MILAN.- Since 2018, “Atlas” brings together works from Collezione Prada in Torre's six floors, in the form of an exhibition project. Starting tomorrow, Thursday 17 June, the fourth floor is reopening to the public with an unprecedented dialogue between the works by Goshka Macuga and an installation by Betye Saar.

Using various juxtapositions and combinations between different artists, "Atlas" represents a possible mapping on the ideas and visions that guided the shaping of the collection and the collaborations with artists that contributed to the activities of Fondazione Prada.

At the core of Betye Saar's practice (Los Angeles, 1926) it is possible to identify several key elements: an interest in the metaphysical, the representation of feminine memory, and African-American identity. "Atlas" presents the installation The Alpha and The Omega (The Beginning and The End) (2013-16), a circular environment alluding to the initiatory journey and the experience of human life. This work was conceived on the occasion of “Uneasy Dancer”, a solo show of the artist organized by Fondazione Prada in Milan in 2016.

Goshka Macuga (Warsaw, 1967) works with various languages and a plurality of disciplines such as sculpture, installation, photography, architecture and design. Her works focus on the development of complex classification systems that are able to shape and bequeath knowledge. "Atlas" includes three large tapestries by the artist: Of what is, that it is; of what is not, that it is not 2 (2012), Make Tofu not War (2018) e From Gondwana to Endangered. Who Is the Devil Now? (2020). The first one is exposed at dOCUMENTA (13) and represents a consideration on the impact of western culture on Afghan people. The other two works are part of a series of 3D tapestry designed by Macuga to represent a possible interpretation of a past understanding of an image of the future.
