For MUVE Contemporaneo programme Ca’ Pesaro – International Gallery of Modern Art is hosting Afro 1950-1970 Dall’Italia all’America e ritorno / From Italy to America and back, exhibition dedicated to one of the leading exponents of Italian painting in the second half of the 20th century.
America was a great testing ground for Afro Basaldella and gave him the opportunity to meet members of the New York school, including Pollock, De Kooning and Gorky. With forty-five masterpieces arriving from collections and museums around the world, the show pays homage to an artist who is also well represented in the collections of Ca’ Pesaro. It explores the relationship that developed in the 50s between Italian art and American abstract expressionism and action painting.
