SPACES OF LIGHT Piero Dorazio and the International ZERO Movement

curated by Francesca Pola

in collaboration with Archivio Piero Dorazio

1 September – 30 November 2021

Cortesi Gallery, Milano

Cortesi Gallery is delighted to announce its new exhibition in Milano. The project focuses on the connections between Italian Post-war abstract artist Piero Dorazio (Rome, 1927 – Perugia, 2005) and the international ZERO Movement.

An undisputed pioneer in post-war abstraction already from the 1940s, Dorazio established himself in the 1950s as a key figure in the Italian and European context, giving birth to a highly personal and distinctive poetic vision and visual language, focused on a redefinition of painting through a new significance of light, colour, space, and structure.

Belonging to his same generation and particularly active in Germany, The Netherlands, and Belgium, ZERO artists intended to overcome the gestural and subjective identity of art Informel, to redefine a more objective and direct relationship of art with the world.
