This Lucio Fontana exhibit concentrates on the corpus of spatial rooms and is a unique chance to observe about 10 such spaces, some of which have been reconstructed for the first time since the death of the artist. Theorist and founder of the Spatialism movement, Lucio Fontana is known for having annulled the distinction between painting and sculpture, with his renowned cuts and holes in canvases. Fontana is one of the most influential Italian artists of the second half of the 20th century. He revolutionized the concept of painting, sculpture and space, anticipating a lot of research in the 1960s and 1970s such as “Poor Art” (Arte Povera), Conceptual Art, Land Art and Environmental Art.
Following the guided visit, we will have an aperitif to celebrate the new year!
