Rick Owens Subhuman Inhuman Superhuman
15 DEC 2017 – 25 MAR 2018

“The clothes I make are my autobiography. They are the calm elegance I want to get to and the damage I’ve done on the way. They are an expression of tenderness and raging ego. They are an adolescent idealization and its inevitable defeat.”
Rick Owens

On December 15, 2017 the Triennale di Milano will inaugurate a unique exhibition dedicated to visionary designer Rick Owens.
The Curve, the Triennale’s signature exhibition space, will be transformed by Rick Owens into an involving pathway through two decades of endless creativity: a selection of more than 100 garments, objects, accessories, furniture and runway videos will be displayed and connected through a spectacular site-specific installation created by the designer for the occasion.

999 A collection of questions about contemporary living
12 JAN – 2 APR 2018

The house, between analog and digital. New imaginaries transforming our lives. An exhibition collaborative, in constant change; in function of time and space. 999 questions to generate 999 possible ways to live. Home as we’ve never seen it before.

999 questions on contemporary living. Technological, social and economical changes. The house, actually, home. Better: the sense of home, the residences of our existences.

A series of Italian and international experiences, programmed to engage the public in an active way. Different things to do. Physical and digital spaces. Social media as well.

An exhibition to look at, touch and try. “If I listen I forget, if I see I remember, if I do I understand.”

An exhibition that acts as a broad home. A large home with all its various spaces, situations, activities and relationships. The visitor is taken on a true journey inside the home of the future (now, our present), moving from one space to another, interacting with all kinds of new ways to “live”.

From this point of view, the house is no longer a place, but an experience. This exhibition focuses on these new “experiences” of living.

A new “living” for which the line between inside and outside has become blurred and uncertain. A home stretched and opened to the world, a city welcoming different forms of living and inhabiting.
