artists & participants
Five postwar Italian artists, presented in the exhibition galleries, with an original selection of works that characterize the art of Lucio Fontana (1899-1968), Piero Dorazio (1927-2005), Enrico Castellani (b. 1930), and Paolo Scheggi (1940-1971), and with an additional 'study' exhibition of the work of Rodolfo Arico (1930-2002). An exhibition narrative that looks afresh at the notion of Italian painting in the period of the waning of Art informel, evident in the career of a master such as Fontana. The other artists, deploying an emerging pictorial language peculiar to the 60s, offer an international audience a rich vein of Italian creativity, predicated on a new concept of the art of painting, that proposed the chromatic and symbolic force of the monochrome as in both visual and conceptual terms.
