Pirelli HangarBicocca presents Crossover/s, the first Italian retrospective of Miroslaw Balka, one of the most important artists of the last three decades, whose work investigates the existence and nature of man, and individual and collective memory.


Through reflection on the history of Europe and Poland, where the artist was born, lives and works, Balka takes his cue from elements and events of his own biography to make works that approach universal themes with great evocative power.


The exhibition curated by Vicente Todolí and created for the Navate of Pirelli HangarBicocca brings together fifteen iconic works, including sculptures, installations and videos, made by Balka (Warsaw, 1958) from the 1990s to the present, as well as a new production, Holding the Horizon (2016), a video made precisely for this show.
