Carla Accardi. ContestiMuseo del Novecento, Milan. 9 October 2020 - 27 June 2021
ML Fine Art congratulates Museo del Novecento, Milan, on the exhibition “Carla Accardi. Contesti,”originally scheduled to open on March 27, 2020, which will now inaugurate one month from today, on Friday 9 October 2020. Instal shots by Roberto Pini.
This is the first comprehensive institutional presentation of Accardi’s work since the artist’s death in 2014. Curated by Maria Grazia Messina, Anna Maria Montaldo and Giorgia Gastaldon, the exhibition is produced by Comune di Milano|Cultura, Museo del Novecento and Electa, part of a programme titled “I talenti delle donne.”
Featuring seventy works by the artist, complemented by photographs and other documentation from Archivio Accardi Sanfilippo, the exhibition aims to recreate the complex social, political and cultural environments in which Accardi developed her practice, from the late 1940s onwards.
In Spring 2020, ML Fine Art presented “Carla Accardi: Sicofoil,” the first solo exhibition of the artist’s work in the United Kingdom since 1961. Focused on Accardi’s ground-breaking use of Sicofoil, the show was accompanied by a catalogue with texts by Laura Cherubini, Flavia Frigeri and an interview between the artist and Hans Ulrich Obrist.
In the video series “Conversations on Accardi,” Pietro Pantalani and Matteo Lampertico sat down with each of the authors of the catalogue for three hour-long discussions on Accardi’s extraordinary life and work. Re-live the exhibition on our website!
