Forte Belvedere, Prospettiva vegetale

Florence’s Forte Belvedere has been a showcase for contemporary art in recent years.  The historic 2013 reopening for the exhibition of Zhang Huan has launched a new season for contemporary art at the Medici fortification.

Giuseppe Penone – Light and Shadow – Boboli Gardens

Giuseppe Penone is this year’s artist with an exhibition which unites the balustrades of the Forte with the surrounding Boboli Garden to create an expression of contemporary art.  The exhibition is entitled “Vegetable Perspectives”.  The artist’s mode of expression is marked by a profound interest in the relationship between nature and culture, realized in the selection of a variety of media, both unconventional in the Arte Povera tradition and classic such as wood, bronze or marble.
The exhibition will continue at the Forte Belvedere and Boboli Gardens from 5 July through 5 September 2014.
