Idris Khan in London Calling. British Art Today. From David Hockney to Idris Khan

In the 1960s, London began an economic and social transformation that led it to become one of the undisputed capitals of contemporary art. The London art scene made up of countless galleries, as well as world-class museums and institutions, such as the Tate, the Royal Academy of Arts and the Serpentine Gallery, and prestigious art colleges, gave birth to a revolution in art, with movements such as New British Sculpture and Young British Artists (YBA).

London Calling collects, for the first time in Italy, a review of contemporary artists of different generations, whose careers were formed and forged in London, and who in turn contributed to placing the city at the forefront of the art world . Focused on the most recent artistic production, the works have been selected by the artists and represent their current practices culminating in what is, arguably, the vanguard of global creative achievement.

The selection includes the following thirteen artists:

David Hockney
Michael Craig Martin
Sean Scully
Tony Cragg
Anish Kapoor
Giuliano Opie
Grayson Perry
Yinka Shonibare
Jake and Dinos Chapman
Damien Hirst
