Different Might be Everything

The loggia on the ground floor of the Museo Novecento sees a large-scale work by artist Kraita317 in collaboration with the Street Levels Gallery (via Palazzuolo). The site-specific work titled ‘Different Might be Everything’ is the first work of street art to be displayed in the gallery dedicated to modern art. The title stems from Maurizio Nannucci’s 1988 work ‘Everything Might Be Different’, exhibited in the museum’s cloister. Reversing the words is a gesture towards the artistic movement of street art which is still undervalued and often surrounded in controversy, yet something that is very alive, as demonstrated in the ever-active Street Levels Gallery.
