PAC

Overview

The Contemporary Art Pavilion of Milan

Inaugurated in 1979, it was among the first examples in Italy of an exhibition space designed specifically for contemporary art, with the aim of promoting and disseminating realities and visions of national and international authors.

It is the PAC, the Contemporary Art Pavilion of Milan, housed in a structure on Via Palestro. Once inside, you will immediately notice how much the entire structure is illuminated in order to better enhance the works on display. The wide use of windows and windows responds to the need for direct and natural light. You can't help but notice the fluidity of the spaces, with the dividing walls between the various hexagonal rooms reduced to bone.

Over the years the PAC has hosted, and still hosts, great names of the international contemporary art scene such as Laurie Anderson, Emilio Vedova, Andres Serrano, Marina Abramovic, Tony Oursler and many others. In parallel, there is no shortage of proposals for research and experimentation with little-known artists. There are also activities and educational events for adults and children, concerts, reading and thematic conferences.
