From 25 October, the historic Mazzoleni gallery in piazza Solferino, Turin, will host Hans Hartung, a retrospective dedicated to the key artist of European Art Informel, coinciding with the 30th anniversary of his death.
The exhibition covers most of Hartung’s career, with paintings and drawings illustrating the results of the research he conducted between the 1950s and the late 1980s. It is part of a larger project that also includes Hans Hartung and Art Informel, a companion exhibition running at the Mazzoleni London gallery from 1 October 2019 to 18 January 2020. The gallery has long been interested in Hartung, ever since presenting his works in Turin for the first time in 2004. Now, this project investigates the origins of Hartung’s practice and his relationship with other artists who were working in Paris the 1950s and 1960s, including Serge Poliakoff, Jean-Paul Riopelle, and Georges Mathieu.
