Inside Magritte, Florence welcomes the latest exhibition event

04 November 2019 to 10 March 2020

Inside Magritte comes to Florence in an event dedicated to the Belgian master of Surrealism that has been well-received by both critics and visitors. Curated by the art historian Julie Waseige, former director of the Magritte Museum, together with the Brussels Succession Magritte, the exhibition uses a new format that involves visitors in an immersive experience with Magritte’s art. A pleasant 15-minute walk from Convitto della Calza, the exhibition can be found at the Cattedrale dell’Immagine, the deconsecrated church of Santo Stefano al Ponte, where Magritte's paintings are continuously projected across the architecture in a dreamlike atmosphere that characterizes the works of the Belgian painter.

Men with bowler hats or fish heads, clouds, and pipes are the evocative images that star in this multimedia journey, accompanied by enveloping sounds that further illustrate the art of René Magritte to the visitor from the first to the last of his works. This is a new, exciting, narrative language that enhances the life and works of the master of Surrealism. Thanks to the extraordinary visual impact provided by the quality of the Matrix X-Dimension® system, guaranteeing detailed images that are superior to Full HD, all the secrets of René Magritte’s art are revealed, further demonstrating why he is one of the most important artists of the twentieth century.
