American Art 1961-2001. From Andy Warhol to Kara Walker
American Art 1961–2001 at Palazzo Strozzi brings together more than 80 works by some of the most influential names in modern art, from Andy Warhol and Mark Rothko to Bruce Nauman and Roy Lichtenstein.
A number of works will be displayed for the first time in Italy, chronicling the most important figures and movements in American art from the Vietnam War until 9/11.
From the assassination of JFK to the stigma of AIDS, movements like Minimalism and Pop Art proposed an interpretation of history, and showed the power of art as a tool to address topics like consumerism, mass production, feminism, gender identity, racial issues, and the struggle for civil rights.
Step into a focal point of Italy's cultural scene! A laboratory for art, culture and innovation, the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi is a link between Florence and the world. Every time you enter, the exhibition will be different, and there's always an excuse to visit this masterpiece of Renaissance architecture.
Built around the original Renaissance courtyard, the public square that the Palazzo calls home is host to a number of events, all year long. Stick around for concerts, performances, installations, and more.
