Description

Best known for the slashed and cut canvases--and related spatial environments--of the "Concetti spaziali" that he created primarily in the 1950s and 60s, Argentine-Italian artist Lucio Fontana (1899-1968) trained as a sculptor at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera and used ceramics and clay modeling to explore larger problems in sculpture and painting. "Lucio Fontana: Sculpture" is published in conjunction with the first U.S. museum exhibition dedicated solely to the artist's groundbreaking ceramic work, and explores the innovative and often contrarian ways in which Fontana made use of the medium. With a foreword by Aspen Art Museum CEO and Director, Chief Curator, Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson, the publication collects landmark text by Jan van der Marck, Paolo Campiglio and Lucio Fontana himself, and features thoughts on Fontana's influence from contemporary sculptors Kathy Butterly, Charles Long and Katy Schimert.show more
