MEMBERS ONLY – CURATOR-LED TOUR OF “LUCIO FONTANA: ON THE THRESHOLD”
02 April 2019 / 10:00 am - 11:00 am
“In our current climate of huge retrospectives . . . On the Threshold is a necessary – and for those who look closely, rewarding – addendum.” —Wall Street Journal
CIMA Members are invited to join us for a private tour of the exhibition Lucio Fontana: On the Threshold at The Met Breuer. Our tour will be led by Iria Candela, the Estrellita B. Brodsky Curator of Latin American Art in The Met’s Department of Modern and Contemporary Art who has curated the show with the assistance of Aimé Iglesias Lukin, a Research Associate of the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art.
This exhibition reexamines the career of one of the most innovative artists of the twentieth century. The show explores the artistic career of the Argentine-Italian artist Lucio Fontana, widely known for his Cuts series, slashed paintings that became symbols of the postwar era. However, the exhibition explores also the artist’s beginning as a sculptor and, alongside the paintings, sculptures, and drawings on view, the Met will also reconstruct three of Fontana’s late, immersive environments, providing a rare perspective on his pursuit of a spatial and technological art.
Please note: CIMA members will receive an email invitation in our newsletter, via Mailchimp to RSVP for this event. Due to the special nature of this private tour with one of the exhibit’s curators, the event is limited to 20 members only!
The exhibition will be closing on April 14, so seize the chance to experience the show before it is over!
