This exhibition catalogue on the pioneering, avant-garde Italian artist Alberto Burri (1915-1995), whose work famously blurred the boundaries of painting and relief sculpture, documents a comprehensive retrospective at the Fondazione Giorgio Cini in Venice. It aims to reconstruct the full trajectory of his career, and addresses the transformative ways that he turned material into art. Nearly 50 works selected from each phase of his career are represented, including the rarely exhibited Catrami (tars), Muffe (molds), Sacchi (sacks), Combustioni (combustions), Legni (woods), Plastiche (plastics), Cretti, and Cellotex series.The show was curated by the art historian and president of the Fondazione Burri, Bruno Cora, with critical essays by Cora and the director of the Institute of Art History of the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Luca Massimo Barbero.
