Feb 01, 2023 248

January 12—February 25, 2023 - 537 West 20th Street, New York, 10011, New York. David Zwirner is pleased to present Roma/New York, 1953–1964, an exhibition exploring the significant intellectual and artistic cross-pollination between artists in the centers of Italian and American art in the 1950s and 1960s, on view at the gallery’s 537 West 20th Street location, and curated by gallery partner David Leiber.

In the early 1950s, against the backdrop of New York’s emergence as an international art capital and Italy’s postwar economic boom and cultural revival after fascism, Informale and abstract painters working and exhibiting in Rome, such as Afro Basaldella, Alberto Burri, Giuseppe Capogrossi, and Piero Dorazio, began to be regularly featured in solo exhibitions in New York galleries—like Eleanor Ward’s Stable Gallery, and Catherine Viviano’s and Leo Castelli’s eponymous spaces.
