Villa Medici, Florence
The French Academy in Rome – Villa Medici will host the first solo exhibition in Italy by Annette Messager, one of the most famous, innovative and nonconformist French artists on the contemporary art scene.
Internationally speaking the exhibition is already looking like one of the big cultural events of the season. Titled Messaggera, the show combines the most remarkable works of a prestigious career with new ones specially created for the Villa. Taken together they testify to the eclecticism of an artist who makes nonchalant play with references both to art history and popular culture.
