Andrea Bowers. Moving in Space without Asking Permission is the fourth edition of the Furla Seriesproject, and is the upshot of collaboration between Fondazione Furla and GAM: a partnership undertaken in 2021 with the exhibition by Nairy Baghramian and recently renewed for the staging of the upcoming events in the cycle.
Furla Series is the project cycle that since 2017 has engaged Fondazione Furla in the creation of exhibitions in collaboration with major Italian art institutions, with an all-female program designed to valorize and showcase women’s fundamental contribution to contemporary culture.
Furla Series is realized with the support of Intesa Sanpaolo.
