Full Description

Renato Mambor, an Italian painter, photographer, and performing artist, was a member of the 1960’s Scuola di Piazza del Popolo group in Rome, together with Mario Schifano, Pino Pascali, and Jannis Kounellis. This book documents a retrospective exhibition of his career, which brings together thirty works created between the 1960s and 2013. Mambor played a major role in the return to a form of figuration, also becoming a celebrated performer, theater director and stage designer. The book includes a wide selection of archival images and texts by the artist, and highlights his creative process in a number of mediums, from painting to performance. It includes an interview with Gianna Mazzini, director of the documentary Mambor (2019).
