Imagine. New Imagery in Italian Art 1960-1969
From 23 April to 19 September 2016 the Peggy Guggenheim Collection presented Imagine. New Imagery in Italian Art 1960-1969, curated by Luca Massimo Barbero. This fresh perspective on European postwar art looked at figuration in the Italian avant-garde in the 1960s. During this time, at the height of the economic boom, artistic experimentation flourished at an unprecedented pace and intensity. The goal was to create a new vocabulary of signs and images capable of interpreting the vitality of contemporary culture and society. This exhibition drew on the richness of Italian art production in those years.
