BFC is back in Rome, with a solo exhibition of new works at Galleria Varsi.
In the two years that have passed since “Reality Check” their last show at Varsi, the BF have continued to take their art around the globe, with an exhibition in Mexico and a major collaboration with the rock band U2, producing a series of music videos for the band that saw their art turned into stop-motion.
“Safe Troubles” features an entirely new body of experimental oil paintings by Deso, Tant and Unga, who have turned their attention inwards, to look at their personal surroundings, their nomadic lifestyle, and the continuity of western art history, that is still distant and disconnected from the history of their own country.
Still rendered in their punchy and unforgettable style, with references to graphics, graffiti and muralism, these works nonetheless represent the beginning of a new period for the three artists.
On the occasion of “Safe Troubles”, BFC is also releasing a collection of handmade, single-edition denim jackets, made in collaboration with Alessia De Pasquale.
“Safe Troubles” will be on show at Galleria Varsi from April 13 to May 18 in via di Grotta Pinta 38, Rome.
