León Ferrari

Sep 3, 1920 - Jul 25, 2013

León Ferrari was an Argentine contemporary conceptual artist. During his extended art career, his artworks often protested the Argentinian government, the imperialist west, and the Church.
Ferrari's protest piece "Western and Christian Civilization," which depicted a near life-size Christ hanging crucified on an American fighter jet, attracted controversy when he created it in 1965, and it has been exhibited many times since. Ferrari caused protests against his work throughout his career, including from Pope Francis when he was still Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio.
