 NEW YORK, NY – On the evening of the June 21st summer solstice, Ugo Rondinone: I ♥ John Giorno —the first major U.S. exhibition

about the American poet, artist, activist and muse John Giorno—will open simultaneously across 13 locations in New York City.

I ♥ John Giorno  is a work of art by Giorno’s husband, the Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone.

The exhibition is a celebration of the life and work of John Giorno—an artist whose work has influenced generations. Taking place in his chosen hometown,

the exhibition affords a unique opportunity for Giorno’s contributions to be recognized within the canons of American poetry and art history.

I ♥ John Giorno will take place across Artists Space, High Line Art, Howl! Happening, Hunter College Art Galleries, the Kitchen, New Museum, Red Bull Arts, Rubin Museum of Art, Sky Art, Swiss Institute, White Columns and 80WSE Gallery.

SKY ART is a nonprofit art center founded by Frahm & Frahm and Moinian Group. It will focus on contemporary artists working with dialogues of activism, in order to explore the potential of the visual arts to engage with wider socio- political issues.
