C1760 is pleased to present “Alviani X Ancient,” a new exhibition featuring a dazzling display of abstract art and jewelry by Getulio Alviani (1939-2018), a key figure in Zero, and Optical, in dialogue with antiquities from three millennia.


The most exclusive of Alviani’s works will be on view, including never before shown artworks from his private estate and some only displayed in the most prestigious institutions. “Alviani X Ancient” will be on view at 38 East 70th Street from Thursday, April 7 to Sunday, May 22, 2022.

The exhibition, a luminous play of light, metal, and stone from across continents and centuries, features Alviani’s radical abstract sculptures and statement jewelry from the 1960s to the 1980s, alongside works by ancient creators who manifested a similar approach to form, space, and motion. The display includes several key examples of Alviani’s “vibratile textured surfaces,” a term coined by Italian poet and critic Carlo Belloli to describe the artist’s metal forms that appear to be in perpetual movement.
