OBJECTS abstractions, tools, systems, drawings

Claudio Cintoli – Luigi Di Sarro – Ettore Innocente

curated by Carlotta Sylos Calò

20 October – 18 November 2016

In 60’s and 70’s the aesthetic operation ‘opens up’ to involve space, environment and the tissue of history and relationships where it was born, breaking the borders of the visual and becoming experience. Oggetti/Objects – produced and hosted by Centro Luigi Di Sarro (20 October – 18 November 2016) and curated by Carlotta Sylos Calò – shows works by Claudio Cintoli (1935-1978), Luigi Di Sarro (1941-1979) and Ettore Innocente (1934-1987), similar to abstractions, tools, systems and drawings. The exhibition offers a reading of the wide topic of the object (understood as a matrix, model or schema) in the imaginative dimension of 70’s in Italy, marked by a tendency to design that combines utopia and practice.
