EX-NEW, founded in 2017, is an international laboratory dedicated to the research and dialogue between different artistic disciplines and the diffusion of contemporary art. The singularity of the proposal is given by the integration between art and digital fabrication, in virtue of the collaboration with the adjacent makerspace. Ex-New promotes cultural and performing events, exhibitions, talks, educational projects and temporary studies.
Make in Progress is a social innovation project designed to give continuity to the program of the same name originated from an open call by Fondazione Cariplo and part of Distretto Culturale Evoluto MB, with the scientific coordination of the Design Department of Politecnico di Milano and POLI.design.
Make in Progress promotes “Fabbrica del saper fare”, project winner of the open call for the assignment and management of the Ex-Filanda, in which the Center for Contemporary Art plays a major role. In our view, the result of the presence and encounter of different multimedia and crafts realities within the same structure should give rise to a system of eclectic and multifaceted actions able to expand and deepen active participation and collective involvement around the themes of contemporary art.
