The Unbearable Lightness of Being: A New Look at 20th-Century Art from the Tornabuoni Art Collection

Tornabuoni Art London Fatos Ustek

Tornabuoni Art London has announced the 2019 recipient of its Annual Curatorial Fellowship. Fatoş Üstek, currently Director and Chief Curator at DRAF (David Roberts Art Foundation), incoming Director at Liverpool Biennial has been invited to curate an exhibition informed by the artworks in the Tornabuoni Art Collection.

Artists: Alighiero Boetti, Antonio Bueno, Alberto Burri, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Mario Ceroli, Christo, Gianni Colombo, Enzo Cucchi, Dadamaino, Gino De Dominicis, Willem De Kooning, Nicola De Maria, Piero Dorazio, Lucio Fontana, David Hockney, Jiri Kolar, Osvaldo Licini, Louise Nevelson, Luciano Ori, Fabrizio Plessi, Mimmo Rotella, Kuen Lee Sung, Cy Twombly.

While Tornabuoni Art is well-known for presenting museum-quality Italian post-war art, Üstek has looked at a wide and international array of artists in the collection, who experimented with untraditional media and new and influential artistic positions. Üstek has sought to link works through a conceptual, rather than chronological thread, juxtaposing works by artists of different generations and nationalities and creating new dialogues between them.
