A gorgeously produced exploration of feminist perspectives in the portraiture of a leading Italian Pop painter. Giosetta Fioroni (born 1932) is considered one of the most important figures in postwar Italian painting. Her work is commonly associated with the Scuola di Piazza del Popolo group in Rome (which also included Mario Schifano, Tano Festa and Franco Angeli), as well as with the advent of Pop art in Italy. Yet Fioroni’s practice differs from those of her contemporaries and from Pop as it came to be understood in the English-speaking world. The divergences are most pronounced in her persistent exploration of femininity, rooted in both her personal experiences and her interpretation of the category in popular culture. Giosetta Fioroni: Alter Ego is the first publication to focus on feminist perspectives in the work of Fioroni. It includes an exclusive interview with the artist conducted by Hans Ulrich Obrist and an essay by Anna Dumont on the subject of gendered looking in Fioroni’s portraits of women.
