Italian Abstraction 1910-1960
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
A NEW exhibition displaying pioneering works of abstract art from Italy – Italian Abstraction 1910-1960 – will be on show at the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art, from June 28 to September 24, 2006.
Encompassing five decades, the exhibition aims to provide an overview of the various tendencies and developments within Italian abstraction during its formative years, and includes some 60 works by a number of high-profile artists as well as those who are perhaps less familiar.
They include Giacomo Balla, Enrico Prampolini, Mauro Reggiani, Achille Perilli, Bice Lazzari, Emilio Vedova and Ettore Colla.
Admission: £3.50, £2.50 concessions, free to under 16s and students with a valid NUS card.
The exhibition is organised in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute and supported by the Italian Embassy in London.
