Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Opens in Madrid

Announced yesterday the birth of the Fundación Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Madrid. The two offices in Turin and Madrid will be in close contact.

Yesterday, September 25, the birth of Fundación Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Madrid was announced!

The Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation, founded in 1995 in Turin, has 20 years of experience in promotingcontemporary art in order to make it loved by a wider and wider audience, and has decided to broaden its horizons by opening a new venue in Spain, in Madrid.

The designated space will be Nave 9 of Madrid’s Centro de Creación Contemporánea Matadero, the cultural center that stands in the Arganzuela neighborhood.

Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, president of the Foundation, said, “Madrid is a great European capital, a bridge with Latin America, an increasingly important continent in the world of contemporary art. From the first visit I fell in love with this wonderful space that is the Matadero of its fascinating architecture and its community, so dynamic and engaged. With the birth of the Fundaciòn Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Madrid we will experiment here and grow the model and practices with which, every day for more than 20 years, we have been supporting young artists, promoting knowledge of contemporary art and its social role, and bringing it closer to an ever wider audience.”

Madrid City Mayor Manuela Carmena Castrillo is enthusiastic: “I am really happy that from now on we will have the Sandretto Re Rebaudengo collection in Nave 9 of the Matadero. The Fundación Sandretto Re Rebaudengo is the tool we need to bring the collection to Madrid, so that it can take root and fortify itself here, as it did in Turin. In this way, Madrid continues to bet strongly on culture.”

The two venues, while maintaining their own physiognomy, will be continuously in close contact with exhibitions, projects and the collection itself.
