Vincenzo Agnetti was an innovative participant in the Italian avant-garde from the 1950s through the ’70s, and a prominent member of the artist-run gallery and journal Azimut(h) along with Enrico Castellani and Piero Manzoni. Agnetti’s work traverses a wide formal range with an analytic rigor matched only by his poetic vision. In examining the depth and progression of the artist’s output, Vincenzo Agnetti: Territories begins to map the development of his artistic and philosophical consciousness. The first solo exhibition of Agnetti in New York in over twenty-five years, Territories, first presented in London earlier this spring, celebrates Lévy Gorvy’s new collaboration with the Archivio Vincenzo Agnetti Milan.
After the Future: The Postwar Italian Avant-Garde presents a selection of works that demonstrate the ways in which the Milan-Turin axis served as an epicenter for the gestation and proliferation of ideas in the sphere of emergent international artistic movements. Offering a context for—and in dialogue with—the Agnetti works on view, After the Future includes works by Alighiero Boetti, Alberto Burri, Enrico Castellani, Jannis Kounellis, Piero Manzoni, Giulio Paolini, Giuseppe Penone, Carol Rama, and Gilberto Zorio.
