Tornabuoni Art London is launching its new curatorial fellowship. Every year, a curator will be given the keys to the gallery’s collection, in order to find new threads connecting Tornabuoni’s artworks and artists. Dr Flavia Frigeri, Teaching Fellow at UCL and co-curator of The World Goes Pop exhibition at Tate Modern in 2015, is the first recipient of the fellowship.
Taking as a starting point Vittorio De Sica’s 1963 film Il boom, Flavia Frigeri’s exhibition explores the relationship between Post-War Italian art and the economic miracle in the 1960s. The show focuses on how artists envisioned, represented and reacted to the boom, through the works of Carla Accardi, Franco Angeli, Marina Apollonio, Alighiero Boetti, Alberto Burri, Mario Ceroli, Gianni Colombo, Dadamaino, Tano Festa, Lucio Fontana, Piero Gilardi, Pino Pascali, Francesco Lo Savio, Sergio Lombardo, Mimmo Rotella and Mario Schifano.
