Art meets love

Showing its various facets and its infinite manifestations.love that is happy, that is longed-for, misunderstood, hated, ambiguous, transgressive, or childish, love that unfolds along an unconventional exhibition route featuring visual and sensory input. Love goes beyond the concept of the museum
In this exhibition, it’s the visitors who really tell the story! They reappropriate the display spaces and become consumers and communicators at the same time. Freely allowed to photograph all the works on display (official hashtag: #chiostrolove). The experience of the museum is an experience of 360° sensory involvement. Fully embracing the concept of the continuously evolving ‘open access’ museum. LOVE. Contemporary Art meets Amour!
