's provocation shocking Curators, Galleries and Critics. Yesterday 10/15 unpacking the new oil painting of the artist, there was a surprise: a big painting 150x300 with a sentence "Massimo Rossetti Rifiuta di Esporre" that means "Refuses to Expose". A Joke? A Provacation against Politic or Art Fair? Is it really a new Rossetti's artwork? Massimo Rossetti usually doesn't paint this kind of work. His works, exhibited around the globe, are figurative. The result is a big discussion started around the painting. Rossetti's art action
open many questions about what is today the contemporary art world and about the capabilities of Galleries and Curators to find and understand an Artwork.
