Homage to Fontana, Burri and Manzoni

Giberto Arrivabene Valenti Gonzaga with Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia

Description

Homage to Fontana, Burri and Manzoni
with Elisabetta Barisoni, Luca Massimo Barbero and Giberto Arrivabene Valenti Gonzaga

 

How can the great achievements that have made the story of Italian art unique in the postwar period be translated into the medium of glass? How, that is, have Lucio Fontana’s slashes, Piero Manzoni’s folded canvases. and Alberto Burri’s melting plastic inspired Murano to experiment outside its traditional praxis and create objects of outstanding beauty? The question will be at the centre of a discussion – to be held in front of the Fontana, Manzoni and Burri Vases, extraordinary works created with the help of glassmaster Gianni Seguso – between the artist Giberto Arrivabene Valenti Gonzaga, Elisabetta Barisoni, Director of the Ca’ Pesaro International Gallery of Modern Art, and leading contemporary art expert and curator Luca Massimo Barbero, Director of the Art History Institute at the Giorgio Cini Foundation and President of the Stanze del Vetro’s steering committee.

A cocktail will follow the lecture.

 

Organised by: Giberto Arrivabene Valenti Gonzaga with Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia.
