2012-2013 The new season at MUSEION
Last April the Board of the Founders of Fondazione Museion confirmed Letizia Ragaglia as director of the museum for the next four years. At the same time it introduced a new management formula: each year the museum will host an international curator who will stage a themed exhibition.
After months of work, Museion is proud to present the guest curators and the themes of the main exhibitions for 2012 and 2013. The exhibition programme for 2012 has also been established and the new season is set to see innovations and changes in the museum.
