Enea Righi’s Collection is one of the most important contemporary art private collections in Italy, in which, from the point of view of artistic genres, photography stands to key element while it highlights the body and a social-political commitment. What all the artworks have in common, be them very different one from the other, is the great sensitivity towards artistic forms by which intellectuality and materiality, conceptuality and sensuality, political commitment and form are convincingly balanced.
The about 100 artworks, entrusted to Museion’s collection for the length of ten years, integrate the museum’s collection in various ways. An example could be its reference to the photographic section, but it could also be connected with the artworks of light (Gabriel Kuri) and with the artworks of single artists (Mirosław Bałka, Alighiero Boetti, Roni Horn, Gordon Matta-Clark).
Other artists in the collection: Francis Alÿs, Mircea Cantor, Gino De Dominicis, Nan Goldin, Douglas Gordon, Dan Graham, Henrik Håkansson, Mona Hatoum, Jonathan Horowitz, Joan Jonas, Jiří Kovanda, Kimsooja, Jim Lambie, Annika Larsson, Marcello Maloberti, Allan McCollum, Mario Schifano, Kiki Smith, Jana Sterbak, Wolfgang Tillmans, Salla Tykkä, Pjotr Uklanski, Francesco Vezzoli, James Welling, T.J. Wilcox.
