Testa solare, 1953
Ten years from his disappearance, the Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro remembers Enrico Baj
19-07-2013 - 19-07-2013
The exhibition space reopens with an exhibition curated by Flaminio Gualdoni, entitled Enrico Baj, Children, Bodysnatchers & Other Stories, from 25 September to 20 December 2013.
Through a group of works and a number of rare documents – letters, drawings, photographs, affiches, manifestos, magazines and catalogues – the exhibition reconstructs the primary role of Enrico Baj in the artistic debate of the 50s, where he founded the Nuclear Movement, conceived magazines, drawn up manifestos, but also acted as an active partner of the protagonists of the great international avant-garde.
The exhibition, organised in close collaboration with Roberta Cerini Baj and the Archivio Enrico Baj, will be accompanied by the publication of the second issue of the “Quaderni della Fondazione”, with critical essays by Flaminio Gualdoni and Angela Sanna.
