From 7 October 2023 to 4 February 2024, Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi presents Anish Kapoor. Untrue Unreal, a major exhibition conceived and created together with the famous master who revolutionized the idea of sculpture in contemporary art. Curated by Arturo Galansino, general director of the Palazzo Strozzi Foundation, the exhibition offers a journey through monumental installations, intimate environments and disturbing forms, creating an original and engaging dialogue between the art of Anish Kapoor, the architecture and the public of the Palazzo Strozzi.
Through historical and recent works, including a new production specifically designed in dialogue with the architecture of the Renaissance courtyard, the exhibition represents the opportunity to come into direct contact with the art of Anish Kapoor in its versatility, discordance, entropy and ephemerality . Palazzo Strozzi becomes a concave and convex place, intact and shattered at the same time in which the visitor is called to question his own senses.
In Anish Kapoor's art, the unreal mixes with the untrue, transforming or denying the common perception of reality. He invites us to explore a world in which the boundaries between true and false dissolve, opening the doors to the dimension of the impossible. His works combine empty and full spaces, absorbent and reflective surfaces, geometric and biomorphic shapes. In a world where reality seems increasingly elusive and manipulable, Anish Kapoor challenges us to seek the truth beyond appearances, inviting us to explore the territory of the improbable and unreal, untrue and unreal.
