On the occasion of the new installation of MacRo, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome, curated by the Azienda Speciale Palaexpo and the direction of Giorgio de Finis, street artist Greg Jager has created Metamuseo.
The mural takes its inspiration from the idea of those responsible for the MacRo to renew and strengthen the relationship between the museum and citizens and covers an area of 100m² starting from the entrance. For this work, Jager confronted the place that hosts it, building a dialogue between his art and the architecture designed by Odile Decq.
The result is a graphic artwork, characterized by geometric figures and a rigorous chromatic scheme. Black and grey predominate in the lobby and the suspended paths, red is found in the auditorium and the space dedicated to the cafeteria and white is dedicated to the exhibition rooms.
Greg Jager thus manages to create an abstract dimension that the visitor experiences through the galleries and rooms of the museum.
From October 1st Metamuseo will include three permanent works by MacRo, which can be visited on the opening days of the museum.
