Bratislava and the Zoya Gallery host the first leg of the touring exhibition “ART FACTOR – The Pop Legacy in Post-War Italian Art”. The selection of works by Italian artists comes from the private collection of Fondazione Farmafactoring, which BFF has been putting together since the 1980s.
The exhibition celebrates Italian Art in the second half of the 20th century, describing its path towards the Pop Art as embodied by the output of Valerio Adami, Franco Angeli, Enrico Baj, Lucio Del Pezzo, Gianfranco Pardi, Mario Schifano and Emilio Tadini. From the mid-1960s onwards, these artists engaged with a longstanding iconographic tradition, re-casting and transcending the avant-gardes and stylistic techniques of the past, while making use of a rich variety of resources, often deployed for purposes of social and cultural activism. Indeed, the project – under the curatorship of Maria Alicata – tell this very story: the desire to be active participants in – not spectators to – those initiatives that create value for society, promoting cultural exchange and new perspectives thanks to art and its teachings.
