FONTANA CERAMICS IN PARISA Private Exhibition of Lucio Fontana's Pioneering Ceramics
Throughout his career, in works which defied traditional categories of painting and sculpture, Lucio Fontana relentlessly explored the three-dimensional properties of a wide range of materials. Vividly animating and rupturing the space around them, Fontana’s ceramics, both abstract and figurative, are among the artist’s most innovative and experimental works. Robilant+Voena is showing a selection of these groundbreaking works in our Paris space.
Two Artists, Two ActressesOn view now at Robilant+Voena's space in New York, 980 Madison, Suite 303
An exhibition pairing portraits of two women whose powerful performances captured the popular imagination of their times. Although painted 400 years apart, Francesco Clemente’s Scarlett Johansson (2008) joins in conversation with Giulio Cesare Procaccini’s seventeenth-century portrait of the actress Orsola Cecchini.
These two painters of different eras are united by their Italian roots and the lens through which they have chosen to capture female agency. Clemente and Procaccini do not focus on their subjects' surface beauty, but delve beneath to show them in serious and perhaps conflicted contemplation. Both sitters challenge the viewer with a direct gaze, in turn challenging their respective societies' views on women and celebrity.
Johansson and Cecchini are joined by a selection of old and modern masterworks depicting empowered woman whose allure and grace endures across time.
