MUT, a spa­ce de­di­ca­ted to con­tem­po­ra­ry art, is ope­ning in the Mu­ti­na hea­d­quar­ters, a jewel de­si­gned by An­ge­lo Man­gia­rot­ti. We get a pre­view Mat­teo Or­si­ni is a pas­sio­na­te vi­sio­na­ry. We’re in the Mu­ti­na hea­d­quar­ters in Fio­ra­no Mo­de­ne­se for a pre­view of MUT, the new ex­hi­bi­tion spa­ce de­di­ca­ted to con­tem­po­ra­ry art, la­ter to be pre­sen­ted to the pu­blic along wi­th the new ti­le col­lec­tions by Pa­tri­cia Ur­quio­la, Ro­nan & Er­wan Bou­roul­lec, and Raw Ed­ges at CER­SA­IE. MUT has been crea­ted in one of the ai­sles of the sho­w­room at our hea­d­quar­ters, a jewel of a buil­ding de­si­gned by An­ge­lo Man­gia­rot­ti in the 1970s. “It was in a sta­te of se­mi- aban­don: we bought it in 2008 and car­ried out a re­spect­ful re­sto­ra­tion,” ex­plains the CEO. “The pro­ject in­clu­ded plans for MUT, the spa­ce that will ho­st about 3 ex­hi­bi­tions a year: fir­st a se­lec­tion of 24 works from the Or­si­ni col­lec­tion, to be fol­lo­wed by dif­fe­rent ex­hi­bi­tion pro­jec­ts; then ‘ This is not a pri­ze’, whi­ch, ra­ther than sim­ply being an award, of­fers sup­port for the per­so­nal work of an ar­ti­st. And fi­nal­ly, Dia­lo­gue, an op­por­tu­ni­ty for crea­ti­ve en­coun­ters to ex­pe­ri­ment wi­th ce­ra­mics,” ex­plains the cu­ra­tor, Sa­rah Co­su­li­ch. MUT’s inau­gu­ral ex­hi­bi­tion, ‘ Think of this as a Win­dow’, di­splays works by ‘ big’ ar­tists su­ch as Cin­dy Sher­man, Fi­schli/ Weiss and Ma­ri­sa Merz among others, as well as young ar­tists on whom Or­si­ni is ta­king a punt. “The ti­tle co­mes from a neon work by Ce­ri­th Wyn Evans, on di­splay he­re. I found it the per­fect me­ta­phor for the idea for this spa­ce: an in­vi­ta­tion to see what lies beyond,” con­ti­nues Co­su­li­ch. And the fu­tu­re de­fi­ni­te­ly sees a long way ahead.
