Anish Kapoor, Lucio Fontana on show in Milan
Exhibit in Luigi Pecci Centre of Contemporary Art17 January, 16:25
Kapoor's Here and There is a sculpture in sandstone. Round wine-skin shaped pieces are stacked next to a large block, evoking the very first productive efforts of human civilization. Executed in 1987, the work was shown a year later in the inaugural exhibit of the Luigi Pecci Contemporary Art Centre.
Fontana's Spatial Concept from 1962 is a slashed monochrome pink canvas. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the artist's birth, art historian Enrico Crispoldi called the painting "a violent act of appropriation that Fontana achieved in the terse material of the pictorial field".
