Frieze Masters 2017

Mazzoleni will participate in Frieze Masters with a solo presentation of Alberto Burri (1915–1995). The display will focus on Burri’s pioneering use of celotex, which was central to his practice from the 1970s. In addition, the presentation will also include examples of many of Burri’s early series, including catrame (tar works), muffe (molds), sacchi (burlaps), combustioni (combustions), and plastiche (plastics), to shed light on the development of Burri’s technical and material investigations since the early 1950s. Highlights will include Cellotex (1989) an extraordinary work in acrylic and vinavil on celotex board measuring 250 x 376 cm and Sacco Bianco Nero, a burlap work from 1956.
