Michael Najjar is one of the artists who are part of the new exhibition at the Gallerie d’Italia in Vicenza entitled FUTURO | Arte e società dagli anni Sessanta a domani, conceived and curated by Luca Beatrice and Walter Guadagnini with the patronage of the Comune di Vicenza.
The vision of the future probably coincides with contemporary art as we understand it today. Closely linked, on the one hand, to the idea of progress, technology, innovation; on the other hand to the desire and the need for change: to improve society and oneself convinced that what will be tomorrow could be better than today.
The exhibition starts from the 1960s and goes up to the present. About one hundred works by Italian and international artists, belonging to the Intesa Sanpaolo collection and to private collections, accompanied by a series of photographic images from the Publifoto Archive that best represent and summarize what the man, the artist, has experienced in different eras to the enigma of the future.
On display works by Boccioni, Depero, Fontana, Christo, Boetti, Hirst, Vasarely, Warhol, Lichtenstein, Rauschenberg, Rotella, Schifano.
Hours: Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 18pm.
