Lucio Fontana

Enrico Crispolti, Luca Massimo Barbero

Lucio Fontana (1899-1968), is universally acknowledged as one of the foremost figures in the generation of artists who, in the 1950s and '60s, helped bring about a radical conceptual and linguistic change in contemporary art. The role he played was explored by scholars and critics in the early years of the post-war period, and his work constituted a model for the younger generation of artists in Europe.

In the past two decades, Fontana has achieved significant international renown. The essays in this catalogue by Enrico Crispolti, Luca Massimo Barbero, Caterina Toschi and Piero Dorazio offer insights into the origins and characteristics of Spatialism, the artistic movement Fontana founded, which synthesised colour, sound, space, movement, and time into a new type of art. Text in English and Italian.
