Nathaniel Mary Quinn. Split Face

Museo Novecento is delighted to announce Split Face, a monographie exhibition by Nathaniel Mary Quinn (Chicago, 1977), an artist known for his composite portraits that test the boundaries between abstraction and figuration in a style that recalls techniques from the historical avant-gardes (from 7 October 2023 to 11 March 2024).
The exhibition, curated by Sergio Risaliti and Stefania Rispoli, is the artist's first monographie exhibition in both ltaly and Florence, and will involve the Museo Stefano Bardini and Museo Novecento.

"An important exhibition that brings for the first time in Florence and /ta/y a monographie exhibition of one of the most disruptive artists on the international scene," said Deputy Mayor and Councillor for Culture Alessia Bettini. ':-4 double stage that features the art of Nathaniel Mary Quinn in declination between Museo Bardini and Museo Novecento, putting us in front of more than portraits to real two-dimensional sculptures. A dialogue between Renaissance inspiration, Cubism, and Surrealism that becomes a composition strongly anchored to current events and the every day, to faces, to people, to the breakdown of the personality and characters of each. And Florence, once again, is ready to highlight its expressive power."
