Lucio Fontana

This exhibition charts the radical career of Lucio Fontana (1899-1968), a pioneer of abstract art in Italy in the 1930s.

Born in Argentina, the painter and sculptor is best known for founding Spatialism, a movement whose grandiose aim was to synthesise colour, sound, space, movement and time into a more sensory form of art.

The museum displays some 200 pieces spanning Fontana's career, featuring his trademark materials such as neon signs, ceramic sculptures, punctured cloth and slashed canvases.

Fontana is credited with paving the way for a younger generation of abstract artists such as Yves Klein, Julio Le Parc, François Morellet and Dan Flavin.
