Book Overview

Tearing Things Up
The radical gestures of Lucio Fontana

Lucio Fontana (1899 1968) was an Italian sculptor, painter, and ceramicist, regarded as the father of Spatialism, a midcentury modern movement that linked artistic experimentation with scientific principles and theories.

Debuting in Milan, Fontana settled in Paris in the mid-1930s, where he joined the Abstraction-Creation group and created expressionist sculptures in ceramic and bronze. He later moved to Argentina, where he developed his highly influential Technical Manifesto of Spatialism, a modernist marvel, characteristic of postwar innovation and fueled by a forward-looking synthesis of art, technology, and science. With Spatialism, the artist sought to project color and form into spaces, most famously in his minimally ripped or slashed canvases, such as his extensive Spatial Concept Waiting series.

This dependable artist introduction follows Fontana on his personal and artistic journey to explore the evolution of his pioneering ideas as well as their remarkable legacy on conceptual and performance art.
