Manipulating Reality

 
Manipulating Reality

The CCCS’ new exhibition explores the theme of the manipulation and reconstruction of reality through photographic images and videos, in the work of 23 international contemporary artists.

Photography and video art have always been based on the conflict between recording reality and, at the same time, becoming themselves a falsification of that reality, a viewpoint that builds a particular image of the world. Today, with the spreading popularity of easy-to-use digital technology, that ambiguity has if anything increased, pushing the conflict between appearance and reality to its outer edges.

The material on display in this exhibition, entitled Manipulating Reality, is the work of photographers and video-artists who have developed the potential of these new techniques or who reject post-production procedures, sharing the common aim of playing both with the medium’s possibilities and with the viewer’s expectations, thus creating totally original visions of the world. Do artists still care about the concepts of reality and truth? What is true and what is real in our daily lives today?

The exhibition will show the work of the following artists: Olivo Barbieri, Sonja Braas, Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin, Gregory Crewdson, Thomas Demand, Elena Dorfman, Christiane Feser, Andreas Gefeller, Andreas Gursky, Beate Gütschow, Osang Gwon, Tatjana Hallbaum, Ilkka Halso, Robin Hewlett & Ben Kinsley, Rosemary Laing, Aernout Mik, Saskia Olde Wolbers, Sarah Pickering, Moira Ricci, Cindy Sherman, Cody Trepte, Paolo Ventura, Melanie Wiora.

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.
