Mimmo Paladino Member Opening

February 25, 2016 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

Italian sculptor, painter and graphic artist Mimmo Palladino is among the innovative artists responsible for the revival of figurative art at the end of the 20th century. He is a central figure of the Transavantgardia movement that flourished in the 1980s and 1990s, which sought to go beyond the avant-garde in the use of the figure in an expressive way. In this exhibition, exclusive to Meijer Gardens, Paladino's work is installed in the sculpture galleries and in the Tropical Conservatory. In addiiton, the artist worked in conjunction with our Horticulture staff to create a unique body of drawings specific to the flora of Meijer Gardens. This exhibition is organized in cooperation with the artist and his studio.
