“Give Me Yesterday” at the Prada Gallery Observatory
In December 2016, the Prada Foundation – the cultural institution headed by Miuccia Prada and Patrizio Bertelli – inaugurated a new exhibition space in downtown Milan: the Observatory.
Located on the 5th and 6th floors of one of the buildings in the Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery – one of the architectural icons of the city – the Observatory is an “aerial” space with luminous windows facing the glass and iron dome of the Gallery, designed in the second half of the 1800s by engineer Giuseppe Mengoni.
The “telescope” of the Observatory is aimed at contemporary photography, and follows its evolution in an age where it has risen to absolute focus of global, digital communication.
These 800 square meters of exhibition space are currently dedicated to the inaugural exhibition “Give Me Yesterday” (open until March 12th 2017), which explores the work of 14 Italian and international artists by analyzing their photographic research, from the year 2000 to the present.
