From 15 May to 18 September, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Rovereto is showing the exhibition "Alex Katz. The Sweet Life".
Alex Katz, one of the master of contemporary painting was born in New York in 1927. He experimented with different media: painting, drawing, sculpture and printmaking. The exhibition features 50 works, large- and extra-large format pieces created between the 1990s and today, that illustrate the artist’s maturity period.
Often associated with the Pop Art movement, Katz reworks the references of mass culture, American society, television, cinema and advertising. At the same time, he appropriates minimalist principles, stripping them of their ideological rigidity and focusing on the purely formal characteristics that define collective taste, lifestyle and, ultimately, our relationship with our surroundings.
