The main concepts of “MORPHOS II” was the unifying power of sustainable architecture and the relationship between man and the city.

Morphos II

Architects/designers had been invited to work about the theme of sustainable architecture and the relationship between man and the city. We imagine a future in which sustainable thinking will be the common ground of every cultures’ architecture expressions, and the hybridization of social and cultural realities will represent the new frontier of our lives. Artists, photographers and video makers presented works on the theme of urban identities and hybridization between identities/bodies and urban settings in contemporary time. People, backgrounds, societies, progress and all their inputs creates hybrid identities, modifying each other and being mixed in prospect to shape a better world.

Morphos II

The exhibition was curated by Arch. Luca Curci (Founder of LUCA CURCI ARCHITECTS and It’s LIQUID Group).

International ArtExpo would like to acknowledge all the artists for their effort, vision, and passion for contemporary art.

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.
