To the MAXXI

Rome's newest contemporary art museum MAXXI held its opening press conference this afternoon. As of Sunday, May 30, the MAXXI will open to the public after a near-decade wait. Here's my first impression of the MAXXI and its collection, at NileGuide.com.

I snapped shots with my iPhone using Hipstamatic. Have to say, I am obsessed with this app and I found the perfect subject.

I loved looking down on the curve of Anish Kapoor's widow. And standing at the very tip of the top floor gallery. The collection was not overwhelming but definitely strong with Italian and non-Italian contemporary artists.
