Florence

40 years of American Art in Florence

A major exhibition that showcases the history of contemporary art in the United States bringing together an outstanding selection of more than 80 works by 53 artists, from Andy Warhol to Kara Walker.

Taking you through the most iconic works with an in-depth look at the breadth of American artistic production, the exhibition examines the development of American art from the beginning of the Vietnam War until the 9/11 attack.

 From Pop Art to Minimalism, from Conceptual Art to the Pictures Generation – and including more recent artistic developments in the 1990s and 2000s – through the collaboration with the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Palazzo Strozzi offers an unprecedented reinterpretation of forty years of history, exploring the role of art in addressing such topics as consumerism, mass production, feminism and gender identity, racial issues, and the struggle for civil rights. 

 An artistic experience that encompasses the whole Palazzo from the very entrance in Piazza Strozzi, with the site-specific installation La Ferita (The Wound) by French street artist JR – among the most iconic contemporary artists; a monumental photographic collage in anamorphosis, that suggest a reflection on the accessibility of cultural spaces in the COVID-19 era.

 A must!
