Late last year Prada stepped back from her role as co-CEO at her fashion company, putting in place succession plans. That freed her up to formalise a hands-on approach to her foundation – with its three museum sites in Milan and Venice, and smaller project spaces in Shanghai and Tokyo – becoming its president and director in September. This restructuring also saw a new steering committee, featuring among its number artist Theaster Gates, with whom she is collaborating on mentorship programmes for designers of colour, three of whom she and Gates showcased at the Venice Architecture Biennale. The exhibition programme remains eclectic, from exhibitions for cineaste David Cronenberg and video art pioneer Dara Birnbaum, to a show of historical folding screens curated by Nicholas Cullinan, director of London’s National Portrait Gallery. If that’s not enough for Prada, the foundation continued its exploration of neuroscience and neurodegenerative diseases, launched in Milan in 2022, and convened an exhibition and scientific conference in Shanghai in April.
