Introduction

Scheduled to coincide with Frieze New York and the broader program of art events in the city during May, ROBILANT+VOENA will present a survey of the Italian post-war Neo-Renaissance focusing on two key artists – Agostino Bonalumi and Paolo Scheggi. In 1966 these artists, alongside Enrico Castellani, were selected by Alfredo Bonino to represent the thriving Milanese art scene in his seminal exhibition Italy – New Tendencies (Galeria Bonino, NYC, Oct 11-Nov 4, 1966). Nearly fifty years later ROBILANT+VOENA will re-present their work to the New York public, in an exhibition curated by Francesca Pola, investigating their crucial role in the development of the Italian cultural landscape of the 1960s, alongside singular works by Lucio Fontana and Alberto Burri.
