The Renaissance vs. Abstract expressionism
XVIth century vs. XXth century
Order vs. Chaos
Two men. Two geniuses. One art.
La figura della furia explores the creative process of two different artists, Michelangelo and Jackson Pollock, emphasizing the influence that the first exercised over the second.
The first part of the exhibition is hosted in il Palazzo Vecchio, at la Sala dei Gigli and la Sala della Cancelleria. This first section includes works of art from different parts of the world, from Tel Aviv to New York, and shows the interest of a young Pollock in Buonarroti’s depiction of bodies.
The other part is set in the complex of San Firenze and offers an interactive approach to the legacy of these great artists, including audiovisual material.
The exhibition will run until July 27th
Palazzo Vecchio: 9 am – 12 am. Thursday: 9 am – 2 pm
Complex of San Firenze: 10 am – 8 pm. Thursday: 10 am – 2 pm
