Lucio Fontana. Ambienti/Environments, Hangar Bicocca, through February 25, 2018

Argentinian-born Italian artist Lucio Fontana (1899–1968) is considered one of the greatest innovators of his time in the art world. He was fascinated by 20th-century discoveries in science, physics, and technology, and he also approached art as a topic of research, exploring the most diverse media and methods. As a sculptor, he experimented with rock, metal, ceramics, and neon; as a painter, he tried to overstep the boundaries of the two-dimensional plane. In the late 1950s Fontana began his series of so-called slashed paintings, which became an influential development in visual art.

With its Ambienti/Environments exhibition, the Hangar Bicocca offers art aficionados a unique opportunity to view Fontana’s Ambienti spaziali installations from the late 1940s. These were labyrinths of rooms and corridors created anew for each specific place and then destroyed when the exhibition came to a close. Considering the ephemeral nature of these works of art, they are seen as Fontana’s most experimental but also least well known works. Some of the installations on view at the present exhibition have been reconstructed for the first time since the artist’s death.
