  • Organized by Italian writer and curator Francesco Stocchi, the Fondazione Carriero’s inaugural exhibition brings together works by Gianni Colombo, Giorgio Griffa, and Davide Balula.

  • Enrico Castellani’s consistently monochrome canvases are stretched over nails to create three-dimensional elevations and depressions. Fifteen such works by the Italian painter show the artist confounding the traditional flat surface picture plane—creating stunning illusions of motion and depth—from the 1960s into the 2000s.

  • A retrospective presented in reverse order, this exhibition includes more than ninety sculptural works by Piacentino made between 1965 and 2015.
