Each title from the Basic Art Series provides a comprehensive introduction to a significant artist, architect, or designer. The publications offer a detailed chronological summary of the artist’s life and work and analyse their historical importance and cultural legacy. Readers are taken through the subjects’ biographies and become familiar with key works illustrated in high quality reproductions.
This book follows Fontana on his personal and artistic journey to explore the evolution of his pioneering ideas as well as their remarkable legacy on conceptual and performance art which flourished in his wake.
Debuting in Milan, Fontana settled in Paris in the mid 1930s, where he joined the Abstraction-Creation group and created expressionist sculptures in ceramic and bronze. He later moved to Argentina, where he developed his highly influential Technical Manifesto of Spatialism, a modernist marvel, characteristic of post-war innovation and fuelled by a forward-looking synthesis of art, technology, and science. With Spatialism, the artist sought to project colour and form into spaces, most famously in his minimally ripped, or slashed canvases, such as his extensive Spatial Concept Waiting series.
