Mazzoleni London is pleased to announce “FONTANA / MELOTTI: Angelic Spaces and Infinite Geometries”.


Curated by Daniela Ferrari, art historian and curator at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Rovereto (MART), Italy, the exhibition will explore the parallels in the theory and practice of Lucio Fontana (1899–1968) and Fausto Melotti (1901–86), focusing on their later work and the ways in which both artists conceived of and responded to notions of space and geometry.

Highlighting over 30 paintings and sculptures, the exhibition will consider Fontana’s engagement with the eternal and infinite against Melotti’s preoccupation with balance, precision and local harmony, and will be centered on Fontana’s output during the 1950s and 1960s, and Melotti’s output from the 1960s onwards. It will include works in aluminium, copper, brass, steel, iron and canvas.
