Deepening its ties to the arts, Valentino has partnered with Triennale Milano to open its centennial anniversary exhibition, titled Pittura Italiana Oggi. The expansive showcase, which opens to the public on October 25, will feature work from 120 of the most significant Italian artists, whose work was produced between 1960 and 2000.

Among those included, five artists — Benni Bosetto, Guglielmo Castelli, Francis Offman, Andrea Respino and Sofia Silvia — have previously collaborated with Valentino through the Maison’s Des Ateliers Haute Couture collection. In collaboration with Triennale Milano, Valentino looks to delve furhter into the contemporary art domain, offering a new type of exchange to the artists that the brand collaborates with.

The House has long maintained a relationship with the arts, having spotlighted myriad creators under its Valentino On Canvas brand pillar. In the pandemic, Valentino staged two physical art experiences, dubbed Re-Signify Parts I and II, which reimagined the Maison’s signature codes through the lens of modern art and visual research. In 2022, Valentino sponsored the Italian Pavilion at the 59th Biennale di Venezia, backing the event’s first-ever solo exhibition for artist Gian Maria Tosatti.

Creative director Pierpaolo Picciolo views “fashion and art as separate disciplines that can work symbiotically,” according to the brand. Through his efforts to connect with the art space, Piccioli hopes to facilitate an ongoing dialogue between the two domains, under one roof.

Pittura Italiana Oggi will be on view at Triennale Milano from October 25, 2023 to February 11, 2024. See Bosetto, Castelli, Offman, Respino and Silivia’s previous work with Valentino in the gallery above.
