A retrospective exhibition on the artistic activity of Marina Abramović. An event that also marks a new stage - it is the first time that Palazzo Strozzi dedicates an entire exhibition to an artist. A woman artist.


The exhibition The cleaner displays about 100 works created between the 1970s and 2000s including videos, photographs, paintings, objects and installations. Furthermore, the exhibit features reperformances, that is re-presentations of the artist’s most famous live performances.

Marina Abramović’s career developed around a new idea of performance that put to the test her body, its limits and its potential for expression.

Some of the most famous performative events will be presented to retrace, in the form of an anthology, the life of this extreme artist, who defined herself as The Grandmother of Performance.

Palazzo Strozzi thus continues, after Ai Weiwei and Bill Viola, an exhibition activity that brings the greatest representatives of contemporary art to Florence.     
Marina Abramović will meet Arturo Galansino at the Teatro del Maggio on September 22nd at 3:30 pm, for an event that is already sold out; while the inauguration, attended by the artist, will be held Thursday, September 20th.

Marina Abramović The Cleaner from September 21 to January 20 at Palazzo Strozzi, Florence  INFO  +39 055 2645155
