DUEL - JOSÉ DÁVILA - NOT ALL THOSE WHO WANDER ARE LOST
until 11th October
The exhibition in Florence is a unique opportunity to learn about the work of Jose Dávila, one of the most active artists of his generation in creating new relationships between the sculptural gesture and the definition of architectural space, between the reactivation of collective memory and the contemplation of instant, of kairos in the direct experience of reality and art.
Through the installation of works belonging to different moments of his research, Dávila invites us to reflect on how they can be interpreted the signs and traces that inhabit the current global world - in many cases belonging to the history of art - and on the need to give importance to the rediscovery or direct re-appropriation of them, with the intent to escape the mere recognition of their constituent elements obtained through the electronic devices that act as digital archives.

Prices: Tickets from 8,50 euros
