  • An important catalogue that revisits all the most important works by Pino Manos and his relationship with Fontana and his colleagues in the movement of Rigorismo
Full Description

This is the catalogue of the exhibition held at the Opera Gallery in Paris, dedicated to the Sardinian artist Pino Manos. Manos is renowned for founding the movement called Rigorismo (Rigourism) in 2010, in the wake of Transpatialism and beyond, with the involvement of Enrico Castellani, Agostino Bonalumi, Giuseppe Amadio, Cesare Berlingeri, Alberto Loro, Pino Manos, Vanna Nicolotti, Turi Simeti, Paolo Scheggi, Paolo Bazzocchi, Umberto Mariani and Pino Pinelli, organised and curated by Flavio Lattuada at the Galleria Lattuada, following the spatial poetics of Lucio Fontana. The group of artists were presented by the philosopher, Massimo Donà. Spatialism is expressed in a more radical way and the canons are made more rigorous with the superseding of the bidimensional limitations, the inclusion of new forms of figuration and its openness to new means of expression. A critical essay by Sergio Risaliti, director of the Museo Novecento in Florence, can be seen as an in-depth iconographic apparatus that narrates the vast and transversal artistic activity of a great protagonist of contemporary Italian art.

Text in English and Italian.
