The Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti joins forces with art dealer for New York exhibition

Fabrizio Moretti, the drummer of indie rockers The Strokes, has teamed up with his namesake and Italian art dealer Fabrizio Moretti for a new exhibition in New York.

The exhibition, which will be held at Sotheby’s, has been named ‘In Passing’ and will be held from December 15th to 18th. The Strokes drummer will display a “selection of immersive installations” while the art dealer will 20 Old Master paintings and sculptures dating back to the 14th century.

Art dealer Moretti, said: “What unites [these artists] is their mastery over their craft and their exploration of the universal themes of the human condition. I was intrigued to collaborate with another Fabrizio who shares my name, a man who is both a respected visual artist and musician who excels across disciplines, much like the artists featured in the exhibition, and to re-discover these themes with him.”

Sotheby’s Brahm Wachter added in a statement: “It has been incredibly exciting for my colleague Yasemin Ozuye and I to work on this collaboration with the two Fabrizio Morettis, each a powerful force in their respective fields.

“The collaboration speaks to the larger effort by Sotheby’s to attract new and younger clientele by presenting Old Masters in fresh and interesting ways.”
