Arte torna Arte
08/05/2012 - 04/09/2012
The Arte torna Arte exhibition on display from May 8 to September 4 2012 in the rooms of the Gallery of the Academy in Florence includes over 40 works of art crafted by 32 contemporary artists.
The exhibition displays paintings and sculptures by Francis Bacon, Louise Bourgeois, Alberto Burri, Antonio Catelani, Martin Creed, Gino de Dominicis, Rineke Dijkstra, Marcel Duchamp, Luciano Fabro, Hans Peter Feldmann, Luigi Ghirri, Antony Gormley, Yves Klein, Jannis Kounellis, Ketty La Rocca, Leoncillo, Sol LeWitt, Eliseo Mattiacci, Olaf Nicolai, Luigi Ontani, Giulio Paolini, Claudio Parmiggiani, Giuseppe Penone, Pablo Picasso, Alfredo Pirri, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Renato Ranaldi, Alberto Savinio, Thomas Struth, Fiona Tan, Bill Viola, and Andy Warhol.
The artworks come from the most important international museums, from private collections, or are directly lent by the artists, who are involved first-hand in selecting the works and who in some cases have specifically crafted the work for this special occasion.
The exhibition not only involves the museum premises customarily dedicated to temporary displays, but also the rooms of the permanent collection, the Tribune of David, the Galleria dei Prigioni, the gallery of plaster casts, and the Sala del colosso.
