Istituto Svizzero presents “Martin Kippenberger. The Museum of Modern Art Syros” at Fondazione Sant’Elia, Palermo. Part of the official collateral programme of the biennial MANIFESTA 12, the exhibition, curated by Samuel Gross, will be accompanied by a symposium, screenings, and concerts open to the public (6-7-8 July).
Martin Kippenberger (1953- 1997) was one of the most versatile and articulate artists during the post-war era. The artist, charismatic and energetic figure, produced large amounts of elaborated works with different mediums: paintings, sculptures, collages, posters, and large installations. Kippenberger approached his work with an irreverent and enthusiastic energy, reinventing constantly his artistic career, undermining art’s rigid categorisations of authenticity and originality through the use of appropriation, collaborations and commissions.
Opening times: Tuesday-Sunday 3.30-6.30pm Closed Monday; closed on 14 and 15 July 2018 Free entry
