XY Digitale
Critical review of studies on the representation of architecture and use of the image in science and art

XY al MAXXI. New dimensions of the image in architecture, art and science

June 1st, 2018, 6 – 7:30 pm

MAXXI Museo Nazionale delle Arti del XXI secolo, Via Guido Reni 4A – 00196 Rome

After the event held at the San Luca National Academy in July 2016, the XYdigitale project and the XY journal will be the focus of another important meeting, organized in Rome on Friday 1st June 2018.

At 6.00 pm, in the Graziella Lonardi Buontempo room, MAXXI, the Director and the Scientific Committee of XYdigitale will present to the public the new series of XY journal, open access and multilingual, operating for two years and co-edited by the University of Trento and Officina Edizioni.

As the historical series XY dimensioni del disegno, even the new XY retains the character of a six-monthly critical review of studies on the representation of architecture and use of the image in science and art: an image that is not an object of consumption but a tool to communicate and think, a universal language through which to develop project and intentions, as well as to describe the harmony of the world.
