On the occasion of Art Basel 2018, Tornabuoni Arte presents a booth solely devoted to the Plastiche (plastic works) of Alberto Burri (1915-1995). To celebrate these iconic works – among Burri’s best known and most loved series – Tornabuoni Art is publishing an unprecedented scholarly catalogue to focus on the Plastiche, edited by Bruno Corà, President of the Alberto Burri Foundation in the artist’s home town of Città di Castello.
Tornabuoni Art’s stand at Art Basel will present eight of Burri’s Plastiche, dating from 1962 – 1965, in black, transparent and red tones.

Norwegian artist, Anne-Karin Furunes uses archival photos of nameless faces to examine their personality and identity. She analyzes the faded photographic features and looks for traces of forgotten lives and personalities that have been ignored by the eye of history.
Her works draw on the course of history and of the human being that lives through it. Only in her later paintings does the artist start to depict natural elements.
Furunes observes and memorizes the photographs, then she reproduces them on surfaces coated by thousands of perforations.
This technique, achieved by using a stamp and a hammer, has an artisan, almost sculptural dimension to it.
It is thanks to the variation of light and weather conditions they are surrounded by that these works keep enriching and enjoying new life.

Tornabuoni Art London is launching its new curatorial fellowship. Every year, a curator will be given the keys to the gallery’s collection, in order to find new threads connecting Tornabuoni’s artworks and artists. Dr Flavia Frigeri, Teaching Fellow at UCL and co-curator of The World Goes Pop exhibition at Tate Modern in 2015, is the first recipient of the fellowship.
Taking as a starting point Vittorio De Sica’s 1963 film Il boom, Flavia Frigeri’s exhibition explores the relationship between Post-War Italian art and the economic miracle in the 1960s. The show focuses on how artists envisioned, represented and reacted to the boom, through the works of Carla Accardi, Franco Angeli, Marina Apollonio, Alighiero Boetti, Alberto Burri, Mario Ceroli, Gianni Colombo, Dadamaino, Tano Festa, Lucio Fontana, Piero Gilardi, Pino Pascali, Francesco Lo Savio, Sergio Lombardo, Mimmo Rotella and Mario Schifano.

This year the gallery also celebrates the thirtieth edition of Antologia of modern and contemporary art, a refined publication that accompanies and deepens not only the works exhibited but also the complex and immense work behind the research and the realization of this unique collection. The catalog is for the first time divided into three categories: Italian artists, international artists and contemporary proposals.
