Together with the exhibition of Sargent and the American Impressionists in Florence, Palazzo Strozzi in the five hundredth anniversary of the death of Amerigo Vespucci, offers another interesting shows that has to do with the American dream. Its title is the “American Dreamers” and it will be open to the public, like the other, until July 15, 2012. Eleven contemporary artists exhibit their works to bring into camp fantasy, imagination and dreams to build alternate worlds that eschew complexity of reality. This, for American artists, has become too complex not to dream new worlds that propose values ‚Äč‚Äčof the past have disappeared or invent new meanings. Instead of criticizing, the proposal is to invent alternative worlds.
From dioramas of Thomas Doyle, the dreamy watercolors of Laura Ball, with paintings by Will Cotton, Gree Mandy parallel universe, all the artists provide their original contribution and reveal the crisis of the famous American dream that until now has dominated the collective imagery.
