The field trip also included a stop at the Palazzo Reale in the next to Milan’s duomo to see the exhibition La Grande Madre curated by Massimiliano Gioni for the Trussardi Foundation. Through the work of more than a hundred international artists, The Great Mother traces a history of women’s empowerment, chronicling gender struggles, sexual politics, and clashes between tradition and emancipation, from early avant-garde movements to the present.
