The 1970s. Art in Rome

The work of some 80 Italian and international artists is united in an exhibition celebrating art that was either produced or shown in Rome during the 1970s, a decade that was synonymous in Italy with artistic experimentation and political conflict. The show explores the work of artists that best represent the Rome art scene of that decade, incorporating a variety of schools and styles by artists who were active in movements from Arte Povera to conceptual, minimalist, analytical and narrative art. Among the best known Rome artists in the show are Burri, De Chirico, Twombly, Ontani, Cucchi and Ceccobelli, some of whose work appeared as Wanted in Rome covers in the past. The exhibition also showcases international artists who spent time in Rome during the 1970s, such as Beuys, LeWitt, Gilbert & George and Woodman.
