Steve McQueen is one of the foremost artists, filmmakers and screenwriters working today. Over the last twenty-five years, McQueen has turned his radical gaze on the human condition, capturing contemporary issues and themes such as identity and a sense of belonging in a poignant and provocative way.
He is the author not only of the most seminal works of moving images designed for gallery-based presentation but also of four feature films for cinema: Widows (2018), 12 Years a Slave (2013), Shame (2010) and Hunger (2008).
In collaboration with Tate Modern of London, the artist has conceived a special exhibition project and a new selection of works for Pirelli HangarBicocca from March 31st to July 31st 2022. Alongside some of his most iconic pieces, it will also present a new work. The exhibition will be an opportunity to experience the depth of his visual art career and will highlight his evolution over the years, as well as the more innovative aspects of his works.
