Intersections: art and architecture 1963-1978

Marco Dezzi Bardeschi conversing with Andrea Iacomoni and Fabio Fabbrizzi

The sixties and seventies, with the birth and the diffuse explosion of the great collective revolution of ’68, generated on-going and fertile intersections among art disciplines. The personal and collective experiences of Marco Dezzi Bardeschi became the excuse to venture into experimentations going beyond the traditional boundaries of architectural planning. A conversation with Fabio Fabbrizi and Andrea Iacomoni will offer the chance to retrace the exchanges and relations between artists, critics and architects, starting from the 1963 exhibit Alternative Attuali (l’impegno delle nuove generazioni) at l’Aquila by Enrico Crispolti and Paolo Portoghesi, with homages to Lucio Fontana, Corrado Cagli and Ludovico Quaroni together with the revealing presence of American pop artists. Projects and exhibits, among which the congresses of Verucchio, and the Biennale of the Youngsters in Paris, by Giulio Carlo Argan and Palma Bucarelli, with Lara Vinca Masini and the other artists of the Centro Proposte (1967). The conversation will also include the 1968 Triennale of Milan (never inaugurated due to the occupation by the artists themselves) and the one in 1973, by Aldo Rossi; the two exhibits in Bologna called Tra Rivolta e Rivoluzione (1972) and Avanguardia e cultura popolare (1975), by Gianni Accame; the Biennale of Venice in 1978 (Topologia e morfogenesi) by Lara Vinca Masini. The intersections, still going on today, would lead to the polemic counter-project for the rearrangement of the Halles in Paris (1979) and to the debate on the realization of the museum of contemporary art in Florence at the Galileo’s former factories.
