JR | THE WOUND ON PALAZZO STROZZI

Palazzo Strozzi, Florence, Italy

From 19 March 2021 the facade of Florence’s Palazzo Strozzi will be transformed by the acclaimed French contemporary artist JR who will reinterpret the facade of the Renaissance palazzo with a new site-specific installation, entitled La Ferita (The wound), designed to trigger a thought-provoking debate on the accessibility of culture in the age of Covid-19.

Palazzo Strozzi is unique for its determination to forge a dialogue between the classic and the contemporary through the involvement of artists capable of interpreting the present. Amid the current difficulties we all face when seeking opportunities to enjoy art in traditional venues, the decision to create an artwork that everyone can see on the facade of Palazzo Strozzi can be seen both as an invitation to rediscover a direct relationship with art and as an encouragement to explore new forms of sharing and participation.
The project is promoted and organized by Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi and Andy Bianchedi in memory of Hillary Merkus Recordati.
