      The Bacchanalian Ones featuring Federico Solmi

      Rowan University Art Gallery presents The Bacchanalian Ones, Federico Solmiā€™s satirical and clownish portrayal of controversial contemporary and historical characters and the distorted events that have contributed to a culture of misinformation, corruption, and hypocrisy.

      Using game engines, Virtual and Augmented Reality combined with his drawings and paintings, Solmi creates ghoulish and bombastic animated depictions of political leaders, colonial rulers, and historical explorers as overindulgent, degenerate devotees of the cults of Bacchus and Dionysus as they engage in extravagant and deranged celebrations, parades, parties, ballroom dance, and feasts. In this body of work, Solmi blends ancient mythology with contemporary celebrity culture and modern myth to reframe and expose inaccuracies in the historical narrative.

      The gallery is open by appointment only. Please call or email the gallery to schedule a visit.
