The popularity of the J-Museum temporary exhibition ‘Pitch invasion, art enters play’, originally due to close at the end of this month, means it will now remain open to the public until 31 August.
Curated by GAM (Turin's Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art), the exhibition – opened last April – was scheduled to come to an end on 27 July, but an extension mean visitors to Juventus Museum can enjoy the unique display for another month yet.
The exhibition, the first of its kind in Italy, aims to unite the two seemingly distant worlds of football and art, creating a positive crossover between a place that collects the successes of the Old Lady of football and a temple dedicated to modern art, the oldest of its type in Italy.
Among the many works on display are those of Francesco Barocco, Gianni Caravaggio, Rä di Martino and Sissi – artists specifically chosen by GAM to exhibit their pieces on the concept of sport and football.
Exhibition: From 18 April to 31 August 2014.
Opening hours: Mon-Fri 10.30–19.00; Sat-Sun and national holidays 10.30-19.00; closed on Tuesdays.
Entrance fee: €18 museum and stadium tour; €12 museum only; €5 exhibition only.
Visitors who produce a GAM ticket at the pay desk will be entitled to a discount.
