The Gucci Museo’s latest exhibition alludes to one of Gucci’s most iconic motfis, the flower, showcasing work produced by four artists between 1967 and 2012 who each explore the iconography of flowers. Far from being just an object of beauty, more complex themes emerge from the flowers, including vanity, memory, politics and the value of art. The four artists involved are Marlene Dumas, Irving Penn, Latifa Echakhch and Valérie Belin, with pieces including Belin’s Phlox New Hybrid (with Dahlia Redskin), Dumas’ Einder, and Penn’s Single Oriental Poppy on show. –Emily Cater
