Dawn of a Nation

From Guttuso to Fontana and Schifano

Curated by: Luca Massimo Barbero

From 16 March to 22 July 2018 Palazzo Strozzi will be hosting an exhibition entitled Dawn of a Nation. From Guttuso to Fontana and Schifano, a truly mesmerising exploration of art, politics and society in Italy from the 1950s to the protest years in the late ’60s, with eighty works of art by such masters as Guttuso, Lucio Fontana, Alberto Burri, Emilio Vedova, Piero Manzoni, Mario Schifano, Mario Merz and Michelangelo Pistoletto.

The exhibition, curated by Luca Massimo Barbero, will be bringing emblematic works of art together for the first time to form a display illustrating the effervescence of Italian culture between the 1950s and the late ’60s, a journey through art that takes its cue from the triumph of Informal Art and leads us on through the images, gestures and figures of Pop Art in strident juxtaposition with the experimental vision of monochromatic painting, right up to the language of Arte Povera and of Conceptual Art.

The challenge facing the Fondazione from the outset has been to bring international quality exhibition and cultural events to Florence and Tuscany.

On the palazzo’s Piano Nobile and in the Strozzina area the Fondazione organises art exhibitions ranging from the art of the ancient world via the Renaissance to the modern and contemporary era.

From: 16 March 2018
