On March 16, the Fondazione Stelline opened “Reginald Sylvester II: The Rise and Fall of a People,” Sylvester’s first solo exhibition in Italy. The New York-based artist creates abstract paintings that touch on Biblical themes as a response to the critical times Western society is currently facing. The opening of the exhibition introduced Sylvester’s first monograph publication with an essay by Michele Robecchi.
