ROBILANT+VOENA presents an itinerary in Italian Post-war Sculpture, through a selection of crucial personalities mirroring the antagonism and dialogue between the classic and the modern, characteristic of this context. Figuration and abstraction, traditional media and radical experimentations are the poles across which Italian Post-war Sculpture gives birth to a new generation of ideas.
Almost an emblem of an ideal and tangible “reconstruction” after the disillusionment of World War II, and the related destruction of technical and executive conventions, sculpture finds a new strong centrality in Italian art of the Post-war period. Plural and branched paths form the lines of its development, between abstraction, figuration, new materials, and conceptual hypotheses. A context of exceptional wealth and inventive vitality, confirming the central role of Italian creativity in a period among the most fruitful in the history of contemporary art.
