If Walls Could Talk…

Third floor

As part of the Didaktika project, the Museum designs educational spaces and organizes complementary activities for the exhibitions, both in the galleries and online, to contribute to the appreciation and understanding of the works on display.

The Didaktika project for Sections/Intersections – the exhibition staged to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Museum and its collection – will be carried out both on-site and online under the title, If Walls Could Talk…

This Did you know? section corresponds to Marking History, the chapter of the exhibition gathering iconic works from the second half of the twentieth century, going back to the original designs of the Museum’s interiors. The innovative spirit that inspired the construction of the building – characterized by complexity, futuristic materials, and state-of-the-art technology – defines the works in this chapter. They were produced using unusual media and techniques, as can be seen in Wall Drawing #831 by Sol LeWitt (1928-2007); the glossy objects in the Celebration series by Jeff Koons (1955); the works of El Anatsui (1944), made with found materials; and the work done by Jenny Holzer (1950) with augmented reality.
