Lucio Fontana made one of the most extraordinary, radical gestures in modern art when in 1958 he slashed the surface of a monochrome painting with a knife. A reassessment of Fontana’s legacy, this exhibition comprises approximately one hundred objects, including sculptures, ceramics, paintings, works on paper, and environments, all made between 1931 and 1968, and reconsiders the artist’s oeuvre between painting and sculpture, as part of a wider research on space and the materiality of the work of art.
