From 4 March until 18 June 2023 the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi and the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo are coming together to celebrate some of the luminaries of contemporary art in the exhibition Reaching for the Stars. Curated by Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi Director General Arturo Galansino, Reaching for the Stars explores the most important strains in art through a constellation of artworks on display in every space in Palazzo Strozzi. The exhibition uses painting, sculpture, installations, photography, videos, and performance art to enhance the dialogue between Palazzo Strozzi and contemporary art, offering visitors a journey of discovery among the stars of global art in recent decades.

Through the eyes of over 50 artists from all over the world, the exhibition sets out to provide visitors with an opportunity to reflect on the present and future of art, openly showcasing its variety, its evolution, and its relationship with contemporary society. Reaching for the Stars is the result of a project based on the creation of a platform for experimentation and participation. The display of the collection’s artworks pairs up with new works created especially for the exhibition and with a broad programme of activities for the public, reflecting the ongoing work of the Collection to move debates in contemporary art forward.
