Anish Kapoor in Florence
From 7 October 2023 to 4 February 2024
Anish Kapoor in Florence: The surreal and far-fetched world of the Anglo-Indian artist at Palazzo Strozzi .
From 7 October 2023 to 4 February 2024, Florence will host one of the most extraordinary artistic events of the year, thanks to the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi with “Anish Kapoor: Untrue Unreal”, an exceptional exhibition, conceived and realized in collaboration with the famous artist Anish Kapoor, who is famous for his revolutionary interpretation of sculpture in contemporary art. The exhibition, curated by Arturo Galansino, director of the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, offers visitors a special chance to explore the artistic world of Anish Kapoor through monumental installations, intimate environments, and surprising forms, creating an engaging dialog between art, architecture, and the public of Palazzo Strozzi.
The versatile art of Anish Kapoor at Palazzo Strozzi
Through an extraordinary selection of his works, both historical and more recent, including a production specifically conceived in theme with the architecture of Palazzo Strozzi’s Renaissance courtyard, the exhibition “Anish Kapoor: Untrue Unreal” offers a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the art of Anish Kapoor, showcasing a poetic versatility that is capable of transforming each space. Palazzo Strozzi thus becomes a place that oscillates between concavity and convexity, integrity and fragmentation, encouraging visitors to question their perception of reality.
Kapoor’s work skillfully combines empty and full spaces, surfaces that absorb and reflect light, as well as geometric and anthropomorphic shapes. In an age when reality seems increasingly elusive and manipulable, Anish Kapoor challenges visitors to seek the truth beyond appearances, prompting them to explore the unlikely and the unreal.
