Imagine a world without art museums. No tourists crowding around the Mona Lisa, or students stood in wonder at a Warhol. The world’s masterpieces would be hidden away in private galleries to be enjoyed by a very few, very wealthy collectors. That’s pretty much the way the art world worked until 1734. Then Rome changed everything.
Founded in 2014, Outdoor Project strives to free art from any barriers. Their projects and artists disseminate throughout the streets and the architectures of Rome, intertwining with the ever changing face of the city. By opening the doors of abandoned buildings and spaces through art, Outdoor Project give them back to the city, fostering education, emotions and sense of community
