American Dreamers. Reality and Imagination in Contemporary American art

Artists: Laura Ball, Adrien Broom, Nick Cave, Will Cotton, Adam Cvijanovic, Richard Deon, Thomas Doyle, Mandy Greer, Kirsten Hassenfeld, Patrick Jacobs, Christy Rupp

Does the “American dream” still exist? Since 11 September 2001, the United States of America has witnessed the collapse of its sense of invulnerability and security, but the ability to dream and the will to believe in a future with a happy ending have maintained their central place in the idea of “being American”.

The exhibition comprises of the work of artists who use fantasy, imagination, and dreams to build alternative worlds in contrast to the increasingly complex reality of life today. Some condense the essence of reality into miniaturised systems while others expand outwards into space, and yet others feed on fantastic, dreamlike images, or reflect on such symbolic themes as the home and the family which play, even today, a central role in the construction of the myth of the American way of life.

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.
