Abstraction, A Visual Reality

09 - 31 March 2022

Abstraction, A Visual Reality places in conversation a wealth of approaches towards abstraction.

The artworks presented span from 1954 to 2021. Indeed, we see the surrealist revolution in the paintings of Alexander Calder and Joan Miró, the lyrical abstraction of painters such as Georges Mathieu, Chu Teh-Chun and Hans Hartung, the groundbreaking inclusion of space and volume in the specialist creations of Enrico Castellani, Lucio Fontana and Turi Simeti, as well as the infiltration of the performative gesture of painting, such as in the canvases of Sam Francis and Hermann Nitsch, and the Gutai works of Kazuo Shiraga, among others.
