Anish Kapoor, Lucio Fontana on show in Milan (ANSA) - Milan, January 17 - Works of Indian sculptor Anish Kapoor and Italian painter Lucio Fontana will face each other in an exhibit running January 21-February 15 at the Milan branch of Luigi Pecci Centre of Contemporary Art of Prato (Centro per l'Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci).

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".
