Zaha Hadid’s works in Masterpiece London Exibition

The Masterpiece London art fair’s Zaha Hadid Commemorative Salon is curated by the CEO of David Gill Gallery, Francis Sultana, who commissioned a number of furniture designs from the architect before her death. An exhibition opens this week in London showcasing paintings, sketches and jewellery designs by Zaha Hadid, selected by a gallerist who had a long-standing friendship with the late architect.

Pieces from Hadid’s Liquid Glacial furniture collection that resemble formations of ice are included in the exhibition, alongside abstract paintings, and cuffs and rings designed for Danish brand Georg Jensen. The exhibition also brings together personal objects and fashion pieces owned by Hadid, including her studio’s reinterpretation of the Louis Vuitton bucket bag and a set of drafting tools.

“This special salon at Masterpiece recognises her unique vision, from the cities in which we live to the buildings within them as well as interiors and the people who inhabit them,” said Sultana.

“It also reveals her love of fashion, which was often quite playful.”

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.
