Asian Art, Performing Art, Contemporary Art

Being as one of most significant Korean choreographers of contemporary dance, Aesoon Ahn, artistic director of KNCDC, always has been interested in the aesthetics drawn from Korean identity, history and culture. In seeking to develop Korean contemporary dance as a choreographer, Ahn’s multicultural approach gave rise to dance that reflects Korean identity, history, and culture. This artistic vision naturally leads to successful experimentation with topics and messages that are highly relevant in contemporary Korean society.

Jeong-Hwa Choi, born 1961, is considered a leading member in Korean Pop art. His works explore everyday, mass produced plastic materials as a celebration of abundance, using these often kitsch materials as a reflection of our consumerism and throw away cultural attitudes to these objects.
He uses these objects repeatedly within large installation spaces, filled with bright colours that promote a sense of magical wonder.

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.
