Published to accompany the exhibition at the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in Rome, On Flower Power brings together history, art and industry in a single object: the vase.
Using the vase as a (sorry) vessel the exhibition attempts via 80 very different works to explore the hybrid territory in which art, design and artisanship interact. Over time the vase has been the subject and object of a narrative which artists and designers have portrayed, photographed and reinvented. 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 and this book offer 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.
