Ugo Rondinone: I ♥ John Giorno is the first major U.S. exhibition about the American poet, artist, activist and muse, John Giorno, that opened simultaneously across 13 locations in New York City on June 21, 2017. 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, and celebrates the artist’s 80th birthday.
