Published by Silvana Editoriale.
Text by Vittorio Sgarbi, Daniela Severi, Edoardo Gnemmi.

In the course of his all-too-brief career, the Italian artist Gino de Dominicis (1947-1998) was frequently characterized as an enigmatic enfant terrible, whose terms of creativity seemingly required the sacrifice of conventional career strategies. Positioned at an emphatic remove from the Arte Povera and Transavanguardia movements, De Dominicis rarely, if ever, allowed his marvelous portrait drawings, tempera-and-gold-on-panel paintings and sculptures to be documented; he eschewed catalogue publications and eventually even exhibition. Since his death, as his influence on subsequent generations of Italian artists has become evident, efforts to revaluate his work have led to retrospectives at MoMA P.S.1 in the United States and the Museo Nazionale Delle Arti Del XXI Secolo in Italy. Figurative Theorems was published for a posthumous exhibition of De Dominicis’ graphic works at the Venice Biennale, and contextualizes this body of work with essays and photographs.

Gino de Dominicis: Catalogue RaisonneGino de Dominicis: Catalogue Raisonne

Published by Skira.
By Italo Tomassoni.

A complex and elusive artist, Gino De Dominicis is considered one of the key figures in contemporary Italian art and a reference point for both the artists of his time and younger generations. Gino De Dominicis' life has always been shrouded in mystery. He chose to stay outside the sphere of media attention and due to this intransigent position no catalogs or books on his works were published. The work entitled "Seconda soluzione di immortalità. L'universo è immobile", presented at the Venice Art Biennale in 1972, was remembered however: Gino de Dominicis faced charges for having exhibited a young man with Down's Syndrome as an art object. The absolute originality of much of his intuition has anticipated artistic experiences that came to fruit in the 21st century. The catalog, edited by Italo Tomassoni, brings together more than 700 artworks, each one accompanied by a dossier which, alongside the usual technical, chronological and bibliographic data, provides information regarding the context and circumstances that led to the work's creation.The volume also includes a section devoted to the artist's writings, a critical anthology and a catalogue raisonné of his works. The book concludes with appendices reproducing rare and unpublished documents dealing with the artist's life, a complete list of his solo exhibitions, his participation in group shows and an extensive bibliography.



Together with Harald Szeemann, Italo Tomassoni curated the first retrospective devoted to Gino De Dominicis at the 48th Venice Art Biennale in 1999. In December 1998 he founded the Associazione Gino De Dominicis. He is among the founders of the Centro Italiano Arte Contemporanea di Foligno, of which he is also the Artistic Director. He held the chair of Art History at the Academy in Perugia until 2001, and from 2002 to 2008 he taught Copyright in contemporary Artwork at Rome's Sapienza University.
