Agostino Bonalumi. All the Shapes of Space. 1958-1976
The exhibition will bring together pivotal examples of Bonalumi´s shaped canvas with early experimental works by his friends and collaborators in the Azimut project: Enrico Castellani, Piero Manzoni, Dadamaino, and their guide Lucio Fontana. A selection of Bonalumi’s paintings from the beginning of the 60s to the late 70s, including some unpublished and never before exhibited canvases from Italian private collections, will form the core of the exhibition and will reaffirm the important role played by this internationally lesser known artist in the development of Modern Art in Italy. The exhibition is accompanied by a comprehensive publication: the first monograph to be specifically devoted to this crucial period of Bonalumi’s activity, the book will include extensive research and unpublished materials, focusing on the connections and role of Bonalumi’s work in the context of the Neo-Avant-Garde during the 1960s and 70s.
