Art and RE: Prelios – HangarBicocca.

Prelios (Ex Pirelli Real Estate, co-founder of HangarBicocca) chooses art to present the new policy of the company.

To coincide with the opening of Eire, the new management, led by  Sergio Iasi CEO, Giorgio Bruno President and Massimo Caputi vice President, chooses HangarBicocca for the organization of the Prelios Day, a unique and exclusive event involving some major international and Italian investors.

The location, the acknowledge cradle of contemporary art, certainly helps to make this event unique, as well as the visit to the exhibition Mike Kelley: Eternity is a Long Time for guests only. The exhibition, curated by Emi Fontana and Andrea Lissoni, is an unprecedented exhibition which examines the work of the late American artist Mike Kelley: (Detroit, 1954 – Los Angeles, 2012) in an open path among installations, videos and sculptures mainly realized from 2000 to 2006: works of great intensity which perfectly represent the complex and visionary universe of one of the most influential figures in contemporary art. Don’t miss it!
