Triennale Milano will dedicate monographic exhibitions in 2024 to Alessandro Mendini, Gae Aulenti, Roberto Sambonet, and Elio Fiorucci. And after more than 30 years it will reactivate the Study Center.

Triennale Milano will open at the end of January a new, totally flexible space dedicated to research, memory and innovation, which will house the Triennale Study Center, which is being reactivated after more than 30 years, and theinstitution’s archive, which includes 300 thousand drawings, projects, photos, letters, and texts, all digitized.

Several monographic exhibitions are also planned during 2024, with the aim of deepening the knowledge of leading figures in design, architecture and fashion. These include the exhibition dedicated to Alessandro Mendini, (curated by Fulvio Irace, April 13-October 13, 2024) realized in collaboration with Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, the one on Gae Aulenti (curated by Giovanni Agosti, with Nina Artioli and Nina Bassoli, May - October 2024) in collaboration with the Gae Aulenti Archives; and again, an exhibition on Roberto Sambonet, (curated by Enrico Morteo, May - September 2024) on the centenary of his birth, and one dedicated to Elio Fiorucci (curated by Judith Clark, October 2024 - February 2025).

Inside the Impluvium, again in collaboration with Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, will be a space for an unprecedented tribute to Alessandro Mendini (April 13-October 13, 2024) conceived, designed and directed by Philippe Starck, who shared several creative and professional experiences with Mendini.

The work of study and research around Ettore Sottsass will also continue, with the fifth appointment of the cycle of exhibitions around thepermanent installation of Casa Lana (curated by Marco Sammicheli, in collaboration with Barbara Radice and Iskra Grisogono of Studio Sottsass, May 2024-January 2025) and with the photographic exhibition Mise en scène (curated by Studio Sottsass with Micaela Sessa, November 2024-January 2025).

The largest retrospective ever dedicated to photographer Juergen Teller (curated by Thomas Weski, January 27-April 1, 2024) will also be presented at the Triennale; the exhibition is in collaboration with La Rmn - Grand Palais in Paris, while with the exhibition of Italian artist Davide Allieri (curated by Damiano Gullì, November 2024-January 2025) Triennale will continue its survey of the contemporary art scene.

The Museum of Italian Design will then be the focus of activities and insights aimed at various audiences: study days, meetings, guided tours, and workshops for children and families. In the final portion of the Museum, the Design Platform space, opened in April 2023 and intended to host temporary exhibitions with a focus on today’s design, will present two exhibitions on the work of two internationally renowned designers: the French designer Inga Sempé (curated by Marco Sammicheli, April-September 2024) and the fashion designer Monica Bolzoni (curated by Marco Sammicheli, October 2024-January 2025).

As in the past, Triennale Milano will be one of the landmarks of the Milan Furniture Fair Week (April 16 - 21, 2024). On this occasion, the collaboration with the event will take the form of an exhibition dedicated to SaloneSatellite (April 16 - 28, 2024), a project for the international promotion of design under 35 wanted and coordinated by Marva Griffin Wilshire, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.

A new partnership, on the other hand, is with Kiton, with whom Triennale is working on a project dedicated to training that builds on the experience of the Scuola di Alta Sartoria that the Neapolitan brand founded in 2000. In January, during Milan Fashion Week, an exhibition co-produced by Triennale and Kiton will be presented (curated by Luca Stoppini, Jan. 12 - 16, 2024), accompanied by a series of events that aim to raise awareness of a virtuous model that can be replicated in other contexts.

Also returning is the collaboration with Giovane Fotografia Italiana | Premio Luigi Ghirri, a project promoted by the Municipality of Reggio Emilia in which Triennale Milano has been a partner since 2022 and dedicated to the discovery and enhancement of emerging talents in photography in Italy. The winner of the 2023 edition Giulia Mangione will exhibit her work at Triennale, (curated by Ilaria Campioli and Daniele De Luigi, January 17-February 18, 2024).

2024 will also be the year of the 50th anniversary of CRT Centro di Ricerca per il Teatro (now Triennale Milano Teatro), to which several moments of artistic production, study and reflection will be dedicated throughout the year.
