Logo Florence Art Week 2023

Once again, this year the Istituto degli Innocenti in Florence is taking part in Florence Art Week, the rich programme of initiatives dedicated to the different languages of contemporary art, scheduled from 28 September to 8 October. The programme, offering 44 events in 32 cultural venues in the city, will see the involvement of 29 cultural institutions in Florence. For eleven days, Florence will be an arts workshop and a showcase of the best of contemporary art production in which the Istituto degli Innocenti, which has always been at the forefront in designing the exhibition, will also play an active role.

All the most representative Florentine institutions and cultural organisations dealing with contemporary art or in conversation with the languages of the present are taking part in the third edition of this initiative. From the original group of promoters, consisting of the Istituto degli Innocenti together with the Novecento Museum, Palazzo Medici Riccardi, the Uffizi Galleries and the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, other museums, foundations, galleries, associations, non-profit organisations, production and research centres, schools and higher education institutes have joined in for a unique event in the contemporary cultural panorama.

The Istituto degli Innocenti is taking part in the 2023 Florence Art Week with a special exhibition in the museum's premises: “Steve McCurry Children”, the famous American photographer's first Italian exhibition entirely dedicated to childhood. The children immortalised by McCurry's lens differ in ethnicity, dress and tradition but express the same feeling with their inexhaustible energy, joy and ability to play even in the most unusual and difficult contexts, often determined by social, environmental or conflict conditions. The exhibition is a tribute to an extraordinary period in life, a gallery of surprising portraits shown in the symbolic place of childhood, the Istituto degli Innocenti in Florence, which has been promoting and protecting children's rights for over 600 years. The exhibition, which is enjoying great success with the public, will be on display in the rooms of the Museo degli Innocenti until 8 October.
