Book Description
Lucio Fontana was one of the most influential and innovative figures of twentieth-century Italian art. From his earliest monumental sculptures and collaborations with architects in the 1930s to his spatial environments and slashed canvases of the 1950s and 1960s, Fontana's raw, vigorous, and richly expressive works overturned the conventions of art and challenged existing ideas about the role of the artist in the age of rapid technological development.
Throughout his lifetime, Fontana was driven by the spirit of exploration, constantly questioning and extending the boundaries of his own practice, confounding expectations, and provoking and amazing an ever-growing audience. This opulently illustrated and beautifully produced book shows how Fontana redefined the possibilities for art, using a rich vocabulary of...


Lucio Fontana Brasil
Helio Oiticica

March 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
One of the first modern European artists to be acknowledged in Latin America, Lucio Fontana is also one of the first of his ilk to be influenced by the cultural reality of this region. Through his poetic inventions, he impregnated the Brazilian art scene with a hypothetical problematization of space and subject; his "wish for space" paralleled similar concerns expressed by his Brazilian counterparts. In "Lucio Fontana Brasil", the dialogue between the two is explored through instances of collation, approximation, and comparison, and is traced to their shared origins in Western art traditions and its developments in South America. Essays by Paulo Herkenhoff, Helio Oiticica, Pier Luigi Tazzi, Murilo Mendes. 9.5 x 11.5 in. 100 color, 38 b/w illustrations English/Italian/Portuguese


Lucio Fontana: Catalogue Raisonne

Book Description
This authoritative catalogué raisonné covers over four decades of creative output that comprise Fontana's career. His intuitive rendering of the intrinsic dynamism of contemporary life into images is represented across the early sculptures to the most recent "ambienti": works designed to be neither painting nor sculpture but "forms, color, sound through spaces". In the 1930s Fontana was a leading exponent of a generation of Expressionists. In the 40's and 50's, he was the protagonist of "informal" Spatialism. In the 60's, Fontana became a point of reference for new pictorial and plastic expression. This historical and critical profile brings a huge body of intense, expressive work into focus. This catalog was carried out in collaboration with the Lucio Fontana Foundation, making it the definitive publication...


Formless: A User's Guide
Yve Alain Bois

October 1900
Paperback

Book Description
Although it is more than sixty years since Georges Bataille undertook his philosophical development of the term informe, only in recent years has the idea of the "formless" been deployed in the theorizing and reconfiguring of twentieth-century art. In Formless: A User's Guide, Yve-Alain Bois and Rosalind Krauss present a rich and compelling panorama of the formless. They chart its persistence within a history of modernism that has always repressed it in the interest of privileging formal mastery, and they assess its destiny within current artistic production. In the domain of practice, they analyze it as an operational tool, the structural cunning of which has repeatedly been suppressed in the service of a thematics of art. Neither theme nor form, formless is, as Bataille himself expressed it, a "job."...
