Federico Luger (FL Gallery) is proud to present a group show with a series of selected works of italian artists that influenced postwar art history. These are germinal works with great historical significance, and of particular interest the works: “I tre occhi” (lightbox), of pistoletto, artwork that is the image of the cover of the book and manifesto of the exhibition of Palazzo Grassi in Venice of 1976, curated by Germano Celant. Calzolari, a work of 1972 on cloth, including a feather, a rose petal, a music stand that holds a sophisticated drawing, and one of the most significant pieces of the delicate poetry of the artist. “Prefazione all’opera acclusa” of Salvo that confirms, with his first work on headstone, reproduced on the invitation of his first exhibition which took place at the Galleria Sperone in Turin in 1971, a conceptual precision, perhaps never reached. And “Four colours crossed” of Piacentino which, very young, has a surgical vision on non primary colors, work once again presented at the first solo exhibition of Piacentino at the Galleria Sperone of Turin in 1966, here represented with its second work produced. Followed by a work of Spagnulo of 1973, coming from Galleria Schwarz, where the artist succeeds in treating the drama of rough iron, with the same malleable poetry of the ceramica, and, in parallel, a column by Uncini that liberates in an aerial manner towards the sky of 1972. An exhibition, we said, that gathers a group of artists, considered nowadays classics, assembled through the interpretation of the gallery, that is “treasures”.
