The show

What does it mean today to speak of the spiritual? What is the space of spirituality in a world dominated by a digital and technological culture and an ultra-deterministic mentality? Is there still a spiritual need underlying the demands of art? To reflect on these and other questions, the MAXXI National Museum of 21st Century Arts brings together some of the most important protagonists of the art scene of our times in the great collective of the spiritual subject of art, strongly desired by the President of the MAXXI Foundation Giovanna Melandri and curated by Bartolomeo Pietromarchi .

"Of the spiritual matter of art" is a project that investigates the theme of the spiritual through the gaze of contemporary art and, at the same time, of the archaic history of Rome.

The works of nineteen artists, leading names on the international scene, from different cultures and backgrounds, are exhibited in an exhibition that offers multiple path possibilities. The works of John Armleder, Matilde Cassani, Francesco Clemente, Enzo Cucchi, Elisabetta Di Maggio, Jimmie Durham, Haris Epaminonda, Hassan Khan, Kimsooja, Abdoulaye Konaté, Victor Man, Shirin Neshat, Yoko Ono, Michal Rovner, Remo Salvadori, Tomás Saraceno , Sean Scully, Jeremy Shaw and Namsal Siedlecki , mostly made in the last two years and redesigned specifically for the MAXXI spaces, are exhibited alongside seventeen extraordinary Etruscan, Roman and Lazio archaeological finds , coming from four among the main museums of the city: Vatican Museums, National Roman Museum, National Etruscan Museum of Villa Giulia and Capitoline Museums. The finds date back to a period between the eighth century BC and the end of the fourth century AD, or from the origins of Rome until the time when Christianity became the religion of the state, and are therefore representative of the path that leads from the archaic world to the premodern one, from the collective dimension of the sacred in the pagan era to the affirmation of a more individual dimension of the spiritual in the post-classical age.
