Achille Perilli: Gli Anni Sessanta exhibition at Galleria La Nuvola
13 Dec-15 Feb. Galleria La Nuvola dedicates an exhibition to Achille Perilli who, having recently turned 90, is among the greatest living Italian artists. One of the earliest abstract painters in Italy, Perilli came to the fore after the end of world war two, and belonged to the celebrated founding group of abstraction, Forma 1, alongside artists such as Accardi, Attardi, Consagra, Dorazio, Guerrini, Sanfilippo and Turcato.
The exhibition at La Nuvola, curated by Fabio Falsaperla and Nicoletta Maria Gargari, comprises a selection of Perilli's works from the 1960s, paying tribute to the complexity of his painting, where "narrating through images, for signs, means reinventing space every time, interpreting reality in a symbolic, allusive context, combining diverse suggestions and linguistic stimuli." Admission to the exhibition is free, for details see gallery website.
