As a major figure in the contemporary art scene, Andres Serrano unveils an often disturbing reality through the lens of his camera. Religion, death, sex and violence perfuse the American artist’s work and all figure in the retrospective exhibition dedicated to him by the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.
Yet beyond these powerful themes, the exhibition reveals Serrano as an attentive witness to the world and mankind. His artistic career is shown by selecting the most symbolic images from all the series he has created. From fascination to provocation: four works that were considered scandalous and were vandalized during past events will also be on display to question the limits of censorship. To show Serrano means to assert our basic values. Against barbarism and intolerance. Against obscurantism and inhumanity.
