Press release

Starting 22 September 2022 the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi will be hosting Olafur Eliasson: Nel tuo tempo, the largest exhibition in Italy to date exploring the art of Olafur Eliasson. One of the most original and visionary artists of our time, Eliasson’s multifaceted practice places the visitor at the heart of his reflection on the notion of shared experience and interaction with reality.


Curated by Arturo Galansino, Director General of the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, the exhibition is a creation of the artist’s direct interaction with the spaces of Palazzo Strozzi. The artist has worked on all of the Palazzo’s Renaissance spaces, from the courtyard to the Piano Nobile and the Strozzina undercroft in a path that features new installations and historic works that combine elements as colour, water, and light to create an interaction with our senses and the Renaissance architecture. The historical and symbolic architecture of the Palazzo is reimagined with installations built around the visitor who becomes an integral part of the artwork.


The exhibition is produced in conjunction with the Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporaneawhich will be hosting a site-specific installation by the artist from November 3rd, 2022.


The exhibition is conceived by Studio Olafur Eliasson and promoted and organised by the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi. Main Supporter: Fondazione CR Firenze. Supporters: Comune di Firenze, Regione Toscana, Camera di Commercio di Firenze, Comitato dei Partner di Palazzo Strozzi and Intesa Sanpaolo. With the support of the Fondazione Hillary Merkus Recordati, Maria Manetti Shrem.
