About the exhibition
Organized with Olivier Renaud-Clément, in close collaboration with Studio Fabio Mauri, ‘Fabio Mauri. Amore Mio’ is the artist’s first solo presentation in Switzerland and sheds light on a period in Mauri’s work during which the seminal Italian artist explored topics pertinent to pop art. The exhibition includes paintings, sculptures and works on paper spanning the early 1950s to the mid 1970s, as well as the installation ‘Amore mio’ (1970), on view for the first time in over 50 years.
