Lucio Fontana Ambienti Spaziali : Architecture Arts Environments
An unparalleled exhibition catalogue of Lucio Fontana's architectural work. For the first time in the United States, the exhibition Lucio Fontana: Ambienti Spaziali presents a substantial number of the spatial environments conceived by the artist between 1948 and 1968, works that can be regarded as forerunners of the environments created by figures such as Allan Kaprow and Robert Irwin and the light art of the likes of Dan Flavin and Bruce Nauman. The book reproduces all the works in the exhibition, including drawings, sketches, environments, sculptures, and paintings.
