FORMA, SEGNO, SPAZIO. Scritti e dichiarazioni sull’arte.
25-01-2014 - 25-01-2014
The book FORMA, SEGNO, SPAZIO
has been published: a selection of the most important Arnaldo Pomodoro's writings on art, curated by Stefano Esengrini and accompanied by sketches, projects and photos. The book is edited by Maretti Editore in collaboration with Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro for the new book series "Scritti d'Artista
" conceived by Concetto Pozzati under the patronage of the Accademia Nazionale di San Luca in Rome.
The aim is to introduce the precious and manifold critical autonomy of the artist, through brief texts, notes, considerations on his own work and on general issues: a thought conveying into sign, word, writing.
The book was presented in Bologna, Arte Fiera on January 25th at 4:30pm along with the books by George Griffa and Joe Tilson.
