The experimental character of Stockholm’s renowned Modern art museum, the Moderna Museet, was formed in the late 1950s and early 60s, with influences coming primarily from Paris and New York. To mark the museum’s fiftieth anniversary, three exhibitions focus on other creative hubs–Rio, Milan-Turin and Los Angeles–during that exciting period.
This volume explores the influential Northern Italian art scene between 1958 and 1968. Highlights include a history of Arte Povera and an introduction to film and design trends of the time. Artists like Lucio Fontana, Piero Manzoni and Michelangelo Pistoletto are surveyed in detail.
