The show

Palazzo Ducale hosts the Obey fidelity exhibition from 4th July to 1st November 2020. The art of Shepard Fairey.


The exhibition, curated by Gianluca Marziani and Stefano Antonelli, produced and organized by MetaMorfosi in collaboration with the Palazzo Ducale Foundation for Culture, with the support of the Genoa Chamber of Commerce, promoted by the Municipality of Genoa and the Liguria Region, offers the opportunity to get to know the work of one of the most famous street artists in the world, whose worldwide fame is linked to the creation of the poster with the stylized four-color image of Barack Obama, from the Hope tilt, who in 2008 became the icon of the campaign election of the future president of the United States.


The Obey fidelity exhibition. The art of Shepard Fairey is a visual journey that crosses four thematic points - Woman, Environment, Peace, Culture - recreating an ideal walk in the metropolitan night at the Doge's Palace. The works on display are organic parts of the same family, an urban conversation between militant messages, pacifist visions, solidarity passions. Obey stimulates reflections on humanitarian issues, on existential passages, on social utopias, on the values ​​of justice above the laws.


"His pacifist and ecological message makes us little" soldiers "of a new militancy, made up of ethical spaces for confrontation, new models of living, healthy and conscious actions - explains the curator Gianluca Marziani. - Make art instead of war. Make love instead of war. Celebrate beauty instead of violence. Denigrate Evil with high doses of moral awareness. It is as if the seventies of the antagonistic cultures went back to swimming in the fluid sea of ​​the web, as if the spirit of our freak paladins relived in the Aesthetic Policy of a better world for better people ".
