    Nairy Baghramian

    The luxurious Neoclassical Villa Reale in Milan, which is home to the Galleria d’Arte Moderna (GAM), boasts the oldest English garden in the city.

Whatever conjecture shrouds Casa Mollino, its allure and beauty are undeniable, and it has become a site of pilgrimage for art enthusiasts.

    “Mollino/Insides” is a testament to the designer’s enduring legacy and impact on artists today. The three-person show teases a look inside the flat through paintings by Enoc Perez and photography by Brigitte Schindler, which are
