The Palazzo Strozzi foundation has launched Contemporary Palazzo Strozzi, a new exhibitions series celebrating modernism, organised by the CCC Strozzina. The project takes the form of four site-specific installations within the courtyard of Palazzo Strozzi, which will be on display until January 25, 2015. Involved in this artistic endeavour is artist Franco Menicagli, the group Kinkaleri, the duo Bianco-Valente and the collective from New York, CHERYL.
The four site-specific installations will give the public the chance to rediscover the inside courtyard space as something dynamic and fresh and has given the artists scope to create works in an ‘open-sir studio.’
Palazzo Strozzi prides itself in being a meeting place where ideas are shared, as well as a place of historic interest whose doors open to the city allowing the public to cross paths and discover the links between past and present, private and public areas and art and the city.
The programme is as follows:
Until November 16, 2014, Franco Menicagli‘s installation, Who doesn’t enjoy looking at the sky? (A chi non piace guardare il cielo?)
November 20-December 8, 2014, Kinkaleri open their installation, Everyone Gets Lighter/ All!
December 11-January 25, 2015, Bianco-Valente unveil their installatation for the courtyard.
January 15, 2015, a special event with the New York collective, CHERYL
