HangarBicocca is a space for contemporary art, located in an area of Milan which used to be dominated by the Pirelli factories. With the completion of the Bicocca Project in 2005 this area has become increasingly urbanised with shops, houses as well as space for artistic initiatives.
The prominent feature of HangarBicocca is the permanent installation The Seven Heavenly Palaces by the German artist Anselm Kiefer, made specifically for the site. It consists of seven towers made of reinforced concrete, each weighing 90 tonnes and varying in height between 14 and 18 metres. In addition to the permanent installations, the space also regularly hosts temporary exhibitions.
Since 2012 the HB Kids program has been providing children aged 4 to 14 years the opportunity to get in contact with contemporary art in their own way. The activities are free of charge and offered during the day at weekends.
Please note that due to special events, HangarBicocca is closed to the public every now and then. Before planning a trip to see HangarBicocca please verify the official website.
