Lee Lozano, STRIKE, at Pinacoteca Agnelli
curated by Sara Cosulich and Lucrezia Calabrò Visconti
Strike is the first monographic survey in Italy dedicated to Lee Lozano (1930–1999).
The exhibition brings together a broad selectio of works by the artist, spanning her brief but extremely prolific career from 1960 to 1972. Trained as a painter, Lee Lozano swiftly rose to recognition in the New York art scene of the 1960s, with a multifaceted oeuvre that incorporated an original experimentation with painting alongside a deeply conceptual practice. Despite being actively involved in the social and artistic context of the time – dominated by Pop Art, Minimalism and Conceptualism – Lozano maintained throughout her life a creative and political stance that radically rejected all labels, culminating in her choice to abandon the art world altogether in 1972.
Divided into seven thematic rooms, the retrospective explores various stages of her career, primarily in chronological order.
