Palazzo Chiaramonte Steri | Palermo

From the 13th of June to the 20th of July

In the cultural frame of Palermo Capital of Culture 2018, it comes the Max Papeschi “Politically scorrect” work. After an experience as author and director for theatre, Tv and cinema, Max Papeschi starts with digital-art. He has exhibit his works in many galleries around the world, and his approach with Art-World was an immediate success among the critics and the public. In his art the cult icons lose their reassuring effect and change into a collective, grotesque and irreverent nightmare, pushing the audience to a deepest knowledge of themselves and them times.
