The Museo della Grafica in Pisa is proud to present Golf is Art. Immagini e storie di sport, an exhibition that tells the history and the stories of one of the most appreciated sports in the world.
The title of the exhibition recalls Rudyard Kipling’s words (“Why Golf is Art and Art is Golf / we have not far to seek…”, 1898), and the selection of prints and objects accompanies the visitors through a distingued and surprising journey, showcasing the imagery of golf as declined in arts, literature, fashion and tourism.
The artworks come from private collections and from Europeana, the European gateway to digital cultural heritage, including prints, posters, artworks, drawings and other artefacts about golf, from the early modern age to the present day.
The exhibition is curated by Alessandra Castellani Torta and Alessandro Tosi.
