The exhibition at Palazzo Albergati
“Jago, Banksy, TvBoy and other counter-current stories” is divided into a dialogue in 4 sections, in which the visitor is accompanied on a journey through the different artists, aimed at bringing out the correspondences between the different orientations. The first three sections are monographs, each dedicated respectively to the three main artists who have been able to subvert the rules of art. The path opens with Jago, whose research has its roots in traditional techniques but which, at the same time, establishes a relationship with the public through video and social networks. We continue with the works of Banksy, probably the most controversial street artist in the world, who has created a subculture in his own right and who has been able to generate new ideal and symbolic impacts by representing the burning issues of global current affairs with speed and immediacy. We then move on to TvBoy, one of the most recognizable street artists with his cultural references to be found precisely in the television bombardment from which he ironically invites us to free ourselves. These three nuclei are then joined, in the last section, by many other works by various generations of artists who have taken inspiration and inspiration from them.
