There is not an absolute definition for the term family. There are only some more or less specific meanings. Perhaps each one of us has its own concept. This ambiguity is the origin of the new exhibition at the Centre for Contemporary Culture at Palazzo Strozzi (CCC Strozzina). Through the work of eleven international artists, “Family Matters. Portraits and experiences of family today” explores the evolution of the social and the cultural concepts of ‘family’.
Guy Ben-Ner, Sophie Calle, Jim Campbell, John Clang, Nan Goldin, Courtney KEssel, Ottonella Mocellin , Nicola Pellegrini, Trish Morrisey, Hans Op de Beeck, Chrischa Oswald and Thomas Struth share the personal subjective experiences of each one of them, but join forces in the search of a universal definition of the term.
“Family Matters” starts the 14th March until the 20th July.
Tuesday to Sunday: 10 am. to 8 pm.
Thursdays: 10 am. to 11 pm.
When it comes to Il Salviatino, your boutique hotel in Florence, we consider ourselves a big family. So, from our family to yours, we highly recommend you this interesting exhibition.
