Description

This catalogue accompanies the inaugural exhibition of Fausto Melotti at Hauser & Wirth New York curated by Douglas Fogle. Including historical material from the archive of the Fondazione Fausto Melotti, the extensively illustrated publication serves as a window into the work of an artist admired for his unique contribution to the development of mid-century European Modernism. The late Italian sculptor, installation artist, and poet moved freely among mediums, incorporating brass, stainless steel, ceramics and fabric into uniquely lyrical sculptures. Also creating drawings and mixed media works, the artist culled from his rich background in music, mathematics and engineering.

The Artist

Fausto Melotti

Italian sculptor, painter and poet, Fausto Melotti is considered a pioneer of Italian art and is acknowledged for his unique contribution to the development of mid-century European Modernism. Coming of age in prewar Milan, and living through the horrors of the Second World War, Melotti metabolized wartime devastation in his work by returning to Renaissance principles of harmony, order, geometry, and musical structure, which he integrated into a highly personal yet universally accessible artistic language that expresses the full range of emotional experiences in modern human existence.
