THE UFFIZI AT CASAL DI PRINCIPE DESIDERATA IN ME­DIA RES

Where Naples Coast & Islands - - DECEMBER -

The first ret­ro­spec­tive and the first per­sonal ex­hi­bi­tion ded­i­cated to Bri­tish artist Mark Leckey, 2008 win­ner of the pres­ti­gious ‘Turner Prize’ and ‘Cen­tral Art Award’. The ex­hi­bi­tion ‘Desiderata (in me­dia res)’ presents an ex­cur­sus of Leckey’s work, amidst new and older pieces: sculp­tural works, in­stal­la­tions, per­for­mance and videos. Leckey’s artis­tic research falls out­side the spe­cific field of art, con­stantly mov­ing to­wards the bound­ary be­tween art and ev­ery­day life. Museo Madre. Via Set­tem­brini, 79, Naples.
