On Sunday the 22° October 2017, from 4.30 pm at the Vilna Shul, 18 Phillips Street in Boston, the Artist Frank Denota from New York will present the exhibition event; “From New York to Italy”,
The Director of the Vilna Shul, Barnett Kassel, in cooperation with All My World and Caruso Gallery, will present the artist Frank Denota.
Born in New York, the artist followed since his first years, personalities such as Keith Haring e Andy Warhol. The vernissage set up has been realized in a particularly evocative location, the Vilna Shul, 18 Phillips Street, Beacon Hill, Boston specifically chosen in order to create a strong contrast between the Graffiti Pop Art style and the beauty of the antique spaces of the Synagogue itself.
Objective of the exhibition: Frank Denota will bring us back to the beginning of the ‘900 when the Europeans emigrated to the United States for social redemption. The expression of Frank Denota’s art is made of an explosive mix of colours presented within an exhibit path enriched by a unique and unprecedented section, called Holocaust which recalls to our memory the years of the Jewish persecution. The exhibition itinerary goes through a sort of reinterpretation of the Graffiti Pop Art concept which has been transmitted to the artist when attending his Masters Keith Haring e Andy Warhol, when he was younger.
FROM NEW YORK TO ITALY, is the first Pop-art Graffiti exhibition of its kind dedicated to such an actual social theme as immigration while the unique section Holocaust is a clear invitation to meditate on how social persecutions and distinctions of human beings based on ethnicity should never happen again.
