The National Museum of 21st Century Arts was inaugurated in 2010, following a ten year gestation period during which Italy ping-ponged its way through six different national governments. Surviving these initial tribulations, the dinosauresque network of interweaving cement protrusions courtesy of Zaha Hadid studio emerged as a refreshing addition to Rome’s architectural and artistic landscape. Since then, the appointment of Hou Hanru as Artistic Director in 2013 marked a new, decidedly more international, bent in the museum’s output.
