  • CHRISTIAN BALZANO. FUORI DAL MONDO (until 12 March)

It is entitled Christian Balzano. Fuori dal mondo (Out of the World) the exhibition organised by MUS.E and Casa d'Arte San Lorenzo and curated by Marco Tonelli, which will be held from 19 January to 12 March at Palazzo Medici Riccardi. Christian Balzano conceived the exhibition project Fuori dal mondo (Out of the World) that aims to raise questions on the condition of the planet. The exhibition is divided into thematic sections, deeply connected to each other: the pluralism of religion, the contaminated and contaminating nature, continents, countries and flags are in fact the themes around which the works on display revolve, all united by the use of fabric, a material that symbolises with its weaves the very skin and flesh of nations in all their geopolitical complexity.
