Opening exhibition Dawn of a Nation

16 March 2018 time 10:00 |

Palazzo Strozzi

Description

A mesmerising journey through art, politics and society in the shape of work by such artists as Renato Guttuso, Lucio Fontana, Alberto Burri, Mario Schifano, Mario Merz and Michelangelo Pistoletto.

The exhibition explores and reflects on the clashes, the changes and the new trends in art in Italy from the end of World War II through to the protest years: from the clash between Realism and Abstraction in the immediate postwar years, through the triumph of Informal Art in the 1950s, right up to Pop Art, Arte Povera and the Conceptual Art movement of the 1960s.

Since its inception, the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi has clearly declared its mission to be ‘not just exhibitions’. Exhibitions at Palazzo Strozzi have been considered a means to reach the Fondazione’s main goal: to help make Florence a dynamic contemporary city, and thereby contribute to renewed quality tourism, increased economic growth, and a better quality of life for its citizens. The Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi uses its exhibitions to create exciting new ways for tourists and citizens alike to explore the city, the county and the entire region of Tuscany. These innovative programmes include special itineraries, guided visits to the studios of contemporary artists, travelling street theatre performances and international conferences. The main ‘laboratory’ is the Palazzo Strozzi, but the experiments happen throughout the city and beyond.
