June 11st - August 21st, 2011 • Museo Diocesiano di Santa Maria dei Servi (PG)
Il Giardino dei Lauri and the Municipality of Città della Pieve are proud to announce an innovative exhibition by world-renowned artist Banks Violette taking place at the Museo Civico Diocesano di S. Maria dei Servi until August 21st 2011.
The solo show, curated by Benjamin Godsill, is a continuation of the contemporary art projects undertaken by Il Giardino dei Lauri.
Brooklyn-based artist Banks Violette – who is included in the “Il Giardino dei Lauri Collection” - is known for creating situations and installations that draw on uncanny examples of the ordinary to spectacular ends. He creates and repurposes images, films, structures, and objects that are full of established cultural signifiers yet totally empty of empirical meaning – endowing these seemingly known forms with new possibilities.
