“THE FALL”. The Cramum 2022 Exhibition opens on September 9 AT THE CENTRAL MARKET MILAN The international exhibition “La Caduta” (The Fall) is open from 9 to 17 September 2022 at the Mercato Centrale Milano (inside the Central Station).

The exhibition and its related publication “THE FALL, How to Fall High” were conceived as a choral reflection on today starting from the novel The Fall written by Albert Camus in 1956.
The curator of the exhibition Frassà explains that «as in the early years of the Cold War we relive in a crescendo of tension for which the fall seems looming, inexorable and inevitable. What to do: close your eyes, record what’s happening or intervene? This exhibition tries to make us reflect on these sensitive issues, without giving certain answers, but wanting to stimulate “good doubts”». This edition of the Cramum Award is made possible thanks to the collaboration of Cramum with the Mercato Centrale Milano as well as: Istituto Confucio dell’Università degli Studi di Milano, Associazione Marmisti della Regione Lombardia, Marini Marmi Srl, Studio Museo Francesco Messina, The Art Talk, ArtBite, Cantina Giacinto Gallina e Ama Nutri Cresci.
The 9th edition of the Cramum Prize is dedicated to Rocco M. ‘fallen on high’ on 25 July 2021.
