Flatland: Abstractions Narratives

In stock (1000 items available)
Borrowing its title from a book written in 1884 by Edwin A. Abbott, an allegorical narrative against dogmatism, with protagonists who are geometric forms, this two-part exhibition brings together artists from 1960 until today, who draw inspiration from the abstract vocabularies running through the twentieth century, infiltrating them with narratives. Their activities involve various artistic, social and cultural phenomena, challenging the orthodox readings of abstraction and advocating one of the most original and paradoxical forms of the return of narrative in contemporary art.
