The Calligraphic Mark as Work of Art

riting as a pictorial form assumed a prominent position in the art of the 20th century. Relations between artists and poets, intermixing of idioms, the stratification of images and words all intensified in the latter half of the century.
Among works of art, posters, artist’s editions, and archival documents, the exhibition explores the aesthetic use of the calligraphic mark: from Futurism to the pictorial experiences of Gastone Novelli and Achille Perilli, from the painted alphabets of Carla Accardi, Giuseppe Capogrossi, and Antonio Sanfilippo to the verbo-visual quests of artists such as Ugo Carrega and Ben Vautier.
