Fondazione Carriero Archive
Through specially designed workshops led by a team of specialized cultural mediators, younger visitors can not only experience the exhibited works during dedicated sessions but also engage in a comparison between their natural creative spirit and the analogous processes that have led great artists to become such.

Fifteen years after the death of Lygia Pape (Rio de Janeiro, 1927-2004), Fondazione Carriero sets out to narrate and explore the career of the Brazilian artist, emphasizing her eclectic, versatile approach. Across a career span of 45 years, Pape came to grips with multiple languages, absorbing the lessons of European modernism and blending them with the cultural tenets of her country, generating a very personal synthesis of artistic practices.
del Bello ideale
Through an impressive selection of works, chosen and installed with the Turin-based artist, Del bello ideale covers his entire career of fifty-seven years, displaying masterpieces, some of his famous self-portraits, and three new site-specific works.
Between the Lines
One decade after the death of Sol LeWitt (Hartford, 1928 – New York, 2007), "Between the Lines" aims to offer a new perspective on the American artist’s practice. With a considerable body of work spanning his entire career – from 7 famous Wall Drawings to 15 sculptures – and starting from the peculiarities of the rooms at the Foundation, the exhibition explores the relationship between LeWitt’s work and architecture.
By presenting around 24 works, the show is an overview exclusively devoted to painting, unfolding almost like the story of an intense creative exchange born at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf, where Albert Oehlen taught from 2000 to 2009.

imaginarii, the inaugural exhibition at the Fondazione Carriero, analyzes the contemporary notion of space and its experience.
Three artists—Gianni Colombo, Giorgio Griffa, Davide Balula — are compared in a trialogue, which, in itself, is inaccessible, if not through direct experience of physical space. If the object and its image are finite, our experience of these is infinite and difficult to enjoy through reproduction techniques. The show investigates this spatial dimension.
Established in 2015 on Via Cino del Duca, in the heart of the city, it stems from the founder Giorgio Carriero's passion for art and his desire to share it, with the goal of stimulating research and the promotion of contemporary arts. It acts as a cultural hub, collaborating with both established and emerging artists, supporting the commissioning of new works alongside a precise research on modern masters. With an eye on the names from the best historical tradition it combines rediscovery and experimentation.
As a non-profit organization, in addition to making its spaces accessible to all, the Carriero Foundation offers free guided tours and workshops for children. The exhibition proposal is also accompanied by in-depth activities and publications, which include exhibition catalogs, reprints of historical editions, and collections of archival materials.
An expression of a specific "Milanese" identity that historically has a strong connection between private collecting and the principles of patronage and social responsibility, the Carriero Foundation aims to create a new entity that is not only an excellent interlocutor for art enthusiasts but also a meeting point between historical context and contemporaneity, in a dimension reminiscent of a private residence that opens up to a dialogue between the public and art.
La Fondazione Carriero è un’organizzazione non proﬁt che promuove la divulgazione e la valorizzazione dell’arte e della cultura moderna e contemporanea attraverso mostre e attività che coinvolgono i più affermati e innovativi artisti nazionali e internazionali. Un’istituzione privata, dedicata alla ricerca e alla conoscenza delle opere intellettuali in ogni forma di espressione, ma anche committente per la creazione di nuove opere.via Cino del Duca 4
