FIAT presents Gran Torino: Italian Contemporary Art - Frost Art Museum, Miami
FIAT presents Gran Torino: Italian Contemporary Art at the Frost Art Museum, Miami, Florida.
According to the website: Gran Torino: Italian Contemporary Art which is immediately recognizable by North American associations with the car produced in the 1970's or the Hollywood film of the same name. Torino (Turin) refers to one of Italy's most vibrant cities and one of the most dynamic centers of contemporary art in Europe. GRAN TORINO: Italian Contemporary Art, curated by Paolo Facelli and Francesco Poli presents the work of a selected group of Torino artists that are representative of not only the local, but also of the Italian perspective, with their own national characteristics in an open and stimulating debate with the international scene. GRAN TORINO: Italian Contemporary Art is an engaging cultural initiative and introduces significant trends and movements of new Italian art to the North American public.
Fiat continues its subtle publicity for it's rebirth in the USA in the form of the New Fiat 500 with the promotion of this exhibition at the Frost in Miami. For me, the best part of the display was the Fiat 500 in the lobby and some of the Dutch masters on display in an adjoining exhibit. The admission was free and it was air-conditioned so, it was not too bad.
