Eighties are Back! is a project that aims to re-read the Italian art of the eighties through a series of solo exhibitions of ten artists, among the most representative of the production of the decade: Alfredo Pirri, Luigi Carboni, Nunzio, Vittorio Corsini, Vittorio Messina, Mario Dellavedova, Daniela De Lorenzo, Massimo Kaufmann, Felice Levini and Marco Tirelli. Each artist has been invited to exhibit two works on one wall, a historic and a recent one, accompanied by sheeds drawn by two critics of different generations who interpret the work.
Alfredo Pirri May presents one of his latest works next to plastic squares, an 1988 work.
