On Fire curated by Bruno Corà

Claudio Parmiggiani
Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice
22 April to 24 July 2022

The exhibition On Fire, curated by Bruno Corà, brings together some of the most iconic works either made with fire, or that include the presence of flames.

Naturally fleeting, with no form, weight or density, fire has always fascinated artists, both for its potential effects on other materials and as an active presence in works of art.

 

The exhibition aims to show not only the consequences of fire but also how it physically features in the work of major international artists, such as Alberto Burri, Yves Klein, Arman, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Jannis Kounellis and Claudio Parmiggiani.
