Lucio Fontana – Tornabuoni Art, Italy

21 Apr — 15 Jul 2023

After the gallery’s venues in Florence (1981), Crans-Montana (1993), Milan (1995), Forte dei Marmi (2004), Tornabuoni Arte – Arte Antica (2006-2022), and Paris (2009), on Thursday 20th April 2023, Tornabuoni Arte opens a new venue in Rome in via Bocca di Leone, between Piazza di Spagna and Via Condotti.

In keeping with Tornabuoni Arte’s tradition, the inaugural exhibition is dedicated to Lucio Fontana, one of the most emblematic artists in the gallery’s history. As Roberto Casamonti recalls, ‘Many years ago I happened to read on the back of one of Fontana’s works the sentence “Today is a beautiful day to live” […] to this day, whenever I am about to embark on a new beginning, this statement comes to mind. And especially […] on a day that celebrates the opening of the gallery’s new branch in Rome, with an exhibition dedicated to Lucio Fontana.’ The selection on show includes more than thirty works spanning almost the entirety of the artist’s oeuvre.

An exhibition that Roberto Casamonti chose to dedicate to the memory of Enrico Crispolti and that benefits from the critical contribution of Luca Massimo Barbero.

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue published by Forma Edizioni with essays by Enrico Crispolti, Luca Massimo Barbero, Gillo Dorfles as well as a handwritten document by Piero Dorazio.
