On Flower Power


Publisher Corraini Edizioni

ISBN 9788875707996


Published with the exhibition at the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in Rome, this book brings together history, art, and industry in a single object: the vase. The vase has been the subject and object of a narrative in which artists and designers have portrayed, photographed, and reinvented it. It has filled roles as both an art object, with its intrinsic value, and an industrial object with the same functions and no less artistic value. Curated by Spanish designer Martí Guixé, the exhibition offers an opportunity to reflect on the relationship between artisanship, design, and contemporary art, and compare visual languages that are more similar than we may think.
