A short selection of works from 2012 to 2016

Many of Alex Urso’s dioramas aim to showcase “anachronistic” interaction between himself and artists from the past. By rearranging traditional forms and figures – using techniques of collage and assemblage – he brings fragments of past artworks into the present and interacts with them. With each of these elements (artists or fragments of works), Urso uses humor, aiming to create a dialogue that calls for a discussion of the authenticity of art history as it has been passed down, namely as a sequence of events seemingly worthy of note.
