Tornabuoni Art London is launching its new curatorial fellowship.
Taking as a starting point Vittorio De Sica’s 1963 film Il boom, Flavia Frigeri’s exhibition explores the relationship between post-war Italian art and the economic miracle in the 1960s.
The show focuses on how artists envisioned, represented and reacted to the boom, through the works of Carla Accardi, Franco Angeli, Marina Apollonio, Alighiero Boetti, Alberto Burri, Mario Ceroli, Gianni Colombo, Dadamaino, Tano Festa, Lucio Fontana, Francesco Lo Savio, Sergio Lombardo, Piero Gilardi, Pino Pascali, Mimmo Rotella and Mario Schifano.
In order to highlight the link between art and industry, iconic design objects such as the Olivetti Valentine typewriter designed by Ettore Sottsass will also be on display.
