FRANCISCO TROPA

The artist creates a sort of archeological portrait of the contemporary, halfway between the fossil and the artifact, in which stillness and movement, suspension and balance, merge.

The artistic imagination of Francisco Tropa combines sculpture with obsolete items from technology and human life. His works always feature an attentive relationship with the concept of history. The artist creates a sort of archeological portrait of the contemporary, halfway between the fossil and the artifact, in which stillness and movement, suspension and balance, merge. Through reproduction, expansion and reconstruction,Tropa yields an historical and prehistorical imaginary. In Gigante as well as in Terra Platónica we are faced with the problem of the translation of time into a relic format.

Francisco Tropa was born in 1968 in Lisbon, Portugal, where he lives and works. He had many solo shows, among which: Francisco Tropa, Musée régional d’art contemporain Languedoc-Roussillon, Sérignan (2015); TSAE, Pavilhão Branco – Museu de Lisboa, Lisbon(2014-2015); Arénaire, Galerie Jocelyn Wolff,Paris (2014); Francisco Tropa, Galerija GregorPodnar, Berlin (2013); Scenario, Pavilhão dePortugal, 54.

Con la grande mostra dedicata ad Ai Weiwei (23 settembre 2016-22 gennaio 2017) per la prima volta Palazzo Strozzi diventa uno spazio espositivo unitario che comprende facciata, Cortile, Piano Nobile e Strozzina.

L’arte contemporanea esce dalla Strozzina e si espande sia a livello espositivo che di comunicazione, in uno scenario in cui Palazzo Strozzi partecipa attivamente all’avanguardia artistica del nostro tempo.

Per questo motivo le informazioni relative alla mostra Ai Weiwei. Libero e il programma di mostre e attività future dedicato all'arte contemporanea saranno consultabili direttamente al sito www.palazzostrozzi.org e sui canali social di Palazzo Strozzi.
