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.

Interviews | September 19, 2020

Mother of four young men, Lidea M. Hajjar, from the Land of Cedars, a tiny spot on the world map, yet Lebanon is mentioned more than 70 times in the Holy Book. Faith and experiences shaped her multidimensional personality, translated in her ambitions, generosity, thoughtfulness, and passion. Pleasantly calm, she fights for what she desires with the belief that great things don’t come easily. Full- time learner, motivated by her love for everything around her, because she says we are part of the universe and we have plenty of resources. She got her degree in Interior Architecture with honours from the Lebanese American University along with her two elder boys, and another degree in psychology from Lebanese University. She speaks 5 languages and the sixth being a universal one, Art, became her greatest language. She designs her projects, plays guitar, dances, and paints with her body, mind, and soul. And in her Ted talk about Architecture and Tango, Lidea stated that everything is correlated, and every work should be done passionately. For years, her little free time occupation was painting, using different techniques and mediums. But fell lately for the acrylic abstracts, where she finds her hand wandering over the canvas, evoking lots of her emotions, and emanating unlimited expressions, especially in a style of her own she called ‘Limitless Limit’. Her goal is having lovers for her paintings more than clients, she wants her paintings owners to fall for them every day. Self-taught painter, based on the discipline of architecture, the limitations and constraints are her opportunities to design and paint. Eco-friendly artists and engineers are a must for our planet. Rules and norms are her challenge to create. Flexibility is mandatory. Criticism and new approaches are cuddled. She is enrolling in a realism workshop to add skills to her skillset. For Lidea the ''Sky is the Limit''. Through her passion for Life, she enjoys nature, reading, music, dance, yoga, walking her pets, and the most importantly spending time with her beloved ones and eating chocolate. Read more
