Curated by Giulia Ferracci in collaboration with Silvia Barbagallo
The project covers the full career of the artist, always associated with the underground scene, a sensitive and aware spokesperson for his generation. The Extra MAXXI spaces will feature posters, a broad selection of illustrations, record covers, original plates from his nine books, T-shirts, logos, lables and a site-specific work drawn by the artist for the occasion.
The layout of the exhibition has been inspired by the Armadillo, the celebrated character created by Zerocalcare and the protagonist of most of his strips and his books, the artist’s conscience and alter ego. Within an all-embracing structure evoking the curves of the animal open the four sections into which the exhibition is organized: Pop, Tribes, Struggles and Resistance, Non-reportage.
