Lucio Fontana: SculptureLucio Fontana: Sculpture

Published by Aspen Art Press.
Foreword by Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson. Text by Lucio Fontana, Paolo Campiglio, Jan van der Marck.

Best known for the slashed and cut canvases--and related spatial environments--of the Concetti spaziali that he created primarily in the 1950s and 60s, Argentine–Italian artist Lucio Fontana (1899–1968) trained as a sculptor at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera and used ceramics and clay modeling to explore larger problems in sculpture and painting. Lucio Fontana: Sculpture is published in conjunction with the first U.S. museum exhibition dedicated solely to the artist’s groundbreaking ceramic work, and explores the innovative and often contrarian ways in which Fontana made use of the medium. With a foreword by Aspen Art Museum CEO and Director, Chief Curator, Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson, the publication collects landmark text by Jan van der Marck, Paolo Campiglio and Lucio Fontana himself, and features thoughts on Fontana’s influence from contemporary sculptors Kathy Butterly, Charles Long and Katy Schimert.

Lucio Fontana: Venice/New YorkLucio Fontana: Venice/New York

Published by Guggenheim Museum.
Text by Lucio Fontana, Luca Massimo Barbero, Enrico Crispolti, Paolo Campiglio, Barbara Ferriani.

In the 1940s, the Italian painter and sculptor Lucio Fontana carried out a gesture that revolutionized the history of contemporary art: He punctured and slashed the canvas, leaving fissures in its surface and creating a new dimension in painting. Recognized as one of the masters of the international midcentury avant-garde, Fontana, who was actually born in Argentina, is considered a father of postwar monochromatic abstraction and Conceptual art. Organized by curator Luca Massimo Barbero of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Lucio Fontana: Venice/New York catalogues the artist's first exhibition in the U.S. since the Guggenheim's landmark 1977 retrospective. Furthermore, it introduces two rarely seen bodies of work that were created around the cities of Venice and New York, presented together here for the first time. The Venice paintings, shimmering surfaces in silver and gold that recall the mosaics of St. Mark's and that city's Byzantine splendor, are juxtaposed with the New York works--giant sheets of shiny and scratched copper, cut through by dynamic vertical gestures that conjure the force of Manhattan and its powerful, electric skyline. Featuring a facsimile reproduction of Fontana's 1947 "Manifesto Tecnico," as well as essays by Barbero and other leading scholars of the artist's oeuvre, including Enrico Crispolti (author of the Fontana catalogue raisonné), Paolo Campiglio and Barbara Ferriani.

Lucio Fontana BrasilLucio Fontana Brasil

Published by Charta.
Essays by Paulo Herkenhoff, Helio Oiticica, Pier Luigi Tazzi, Murilo Mendes.

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 his simple transformations of space and subject, and 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.
