Wunderkammern is pleased to present Long live the revolution, collective exhibition by the artists Tomaso Binga, Paolo Buggiani, Richard Hambleton, Keith Haring and Ken Hiratsuka.
Exhibited at Wunderkammern Rome for the first time, artworks by great masters who have marked contemporary art history, thanks to their will to think outside the box: Tomaso Binga (Salerno, Italy, 1931); Paolo Buggiani (Castelfiorentino, Italy, 1933); Keith Haring (Reading, USA, 1958-1990); Richard Hambleton (Vancouver, Canada, 1954-2017) and Ken Hiratsuka (Shimodate, Japan, 1959).
Art revolution: that is the motto Paolo Buggiani has appropriated by indelibly impressing it on his skin with a tattoo. For the Tuscan artist, revolution is a necessary act to change a static situation, an explosive gesture whose final aim is to bring progress. Rebellion, thought as a subversion of a static order, is the driving force for every artist featured in the show.
