Talia Chetrit ,1982, lives and works in New York; Invernomuto (Simone Bertuzzi, 1983 and Simone Trabucchi, 1982) work between Piacenza and Milan, and Diego Marcon,1985, lives and works in Paris, are the three finalists of the MAXXI BVLGARI Prize, the museum’s project dedicated to supporting and promoting young artists.

The MAXXI BVLGARI Prize represents a continuation as well as the evolution of the Premio MAXXI, responsible for the founding nucleus of the museum collection and a springboard for young art talent. Thanks to the extraordinary partnership with Bulgari, the prize now enjoys renewed vigour and has expanded its horizons with the objective of promoting and valorising not just Italian artists but also those foreign artists who over the last two years have produced a new project in Italy within the ambit of public institutions and private situations.

The site-specific works by the short-listed artists will be exhibited at the MAXXI – Museo Nazionale delle Arti del XXI Secolo – from May 2018, in an exhibition curated by Giulia Ferracci.
In October 2018, the jury will designate the winner whose work will be acquired by the museum.
