For the first time in its history, the Bargello National Museum in Florence hosts a solo contemporary art show: The Ascent of Orpheus – Between and Beyond Representation and Abstraction by the American-born artist Adi Da Samraj.

The exhibition is a retelling of the famous Orpheus and Eurydice myth, through nine digitally composed large-scale fabrications. It is a testament to Adi Da’s advance in what he considered to be the unfinished modernist project of the early 20th century avant-garde.

Adi Da Samraj (1939-2008) created visual, literary, and performance art for more than forty years with a single intention: to create works of art that would draw the viewer beyond the feeling of egotistic separateness into the feeling of “prior unity.” His artistic output includes drawings, paintings, sculptures, and a large body of ground breaking photographic, videographic, and digitally composed work.
