Lucio Fontana. Brasil

One of the first modern European artists to be acknowledged in Latin America, Lucio Fontana is also one of the first of his ilk to be influenced by the cultural reality of this region. Through his poetic inventions, he impregnated the Brazilian art scene with a hypothetical problematization of space and subject; his “wish for space” paralleled similar concerns expressed by his Brazilian counterparts. In Lucio Fontana Brasil, the dialogue between the two is explored through instances of collation, approximation, and comparison, and is traced to their shared origins in Western art traditions and its developments in South America.
