Lucio Fontana
Sculpture

3 Nov – 4 Feb 2023 New York, 69th Street

About

Hauser & Wirth will stage the second part of a trilogy of exhibitions dedicated to Lucio Fontana and curated by Luca Massimo Barbero, in collaboration with the Fondazione Lucio Fontana, on 3 November. Dedicated to Fontana’s extraordinary experimentation in sculpture, this tailor-made presentation will take place at our uptown location, Hauser & Wirth New York, 69th Street, the very same building where in 1961 Fontana’s first solo shows in the United States were held concurrently at the Martha Jackson and David Anderson galleries. These exhibitions, critical to introducing Fontana’s work more deeply to American audiences, followed the artist’s inclusion in the relevant 1949 exhibition ‘Twentieth-Century Italian Art,’ curated by James Thrall Sobey and Alfred H. Barr Jr., at the Museum of Modern Art, where his work remains a highlight of the permanent collection.
