"Olafur Eliasson: Nel tuo tempo" at Palazzo Strozzi

Florence, Palazzo Strozzi

From 22 September 2022 to 22 January 2023

Between 22 September 2022 and 22 January 2023, Palazzo Strozzi presents “Nel tuo tempo”, the largest exhibition by Olafur Eliasson ever produced in Italy. Making use of light and shadow, reflections and colours, the artist involves the Renaissance-era architecture in an evocative experience featuring historical works and new productions, including a large site-specific installation for the courtyard and a special digital-art project created using VR technology and presented to the public for the first time at Palazzo Strozzi.

The exhibition sees all the Renaissance-era rooms of the building involved through the works of Olafur Eliasson, one of the most original and visionary contemporary artists, whose multifaceted production has embraced installations, paintings, sculptures, photography and moving images throughout his career.

Curated by Arturo Galansino, Director General of Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, the exhibition is the fruit of the artist's direct work on the spaces of Palazzo Strozzi, with historical installations and new productions that subvert perception, using the building itself as a tool to create art. The Renaissance-era building becomes a dynamic body in which architectural elements such as windows, ceilings, corners and walls become protagonists through the use of lights, screens, mirrors and coloured filters. Eliasson offers a multitude of possible narratives, with the aim of inspiring a new awareness of space among the public. Going beyond the boundaries and limits of set space, the “Nel tuo tempo” exhibition explores the distinction between reality, perception and representation.

Thanks to the partnership with Intesa Sanpaolo, supporting partner of Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, visitors with a ticket for the Gallerie d’Italia museums, the Galleria di Palazzo degli Alberti and Casa Museo dell'Antiquariato Ivan Bruschi will be offered a reduction in price. 
Vice versa, visitors  with a ticket for the Palazzo Strozzi exhibition will get a discount on their entrance fee to  each of the four Gallerie d’Italia museums and Casa Museo dell'Antiquariato Ivan Bruschi.
