Palazzo Bonaparte in Rome is hosting the first major exhibition dedicated to Jago from 12 March to 3 July 2022.
Jago, pseudonym of Jacopo Cardillo, born in Frosinone in 1987, a refined sculptor with Michelangelo's reminiscences, is known worldwide as "The Social Artist" for his innate communication skills and his great success on social networks.
Jago combines great creative talent with the use of the most contemporary means of communication. And like all great artists, he gets to the heart of the audience, who love him, or rather adore him. He is a rock star, and he passes on his love of art to young people.
Live streaming and photo and video documentation tell the story of the production process of each of his works, and through this shared path, the sculptor makes everyone participate in the genesis of each of his works.
Jago's modern genius is told for the first time in an exhibition displaying all his works to date, from the small river stones he sculpted (from Memoria di Sé to Excalibur) to the more recent monumental sculptures (the Pietà), as well as the more media-oriented works such as the Pope (Habemus Hominem).
Curated by Professor Maria Teresa Benedetti, the exhibition will feature 12 works by Jago, connoting the key elements of a work dedicated to establishing a relationship between our time and tradition...
