Rodolfo Aricò: Line of Demarcation




The first major UK exhibition of the Italian artist Rodolfo Aricò (1930–2002). Focusing on works from the 1960s and 1970s, the exhibition derives its title – Rodolfo Aricò: Line of Demarcation – from the writings of the Italian critic Giulio Carlo Argan, aiming to emphasise the importance of Rodolfo Aricò both in the historical context of Post-War Italian art, as well as a crucial link in the dialogue between American and European artistic tendencies during these decades.Rodolfo Aricò is known primarily for his ‘object-paintings’, which he began to develop during the 1960s and which evolved throughout his entire career. Trained in Architecture, his works manifest a philosophical interest in the notions of time and space, exploring geometry, perspective, and phenomenology, hereby undermining the rigid distinction between the disciplines of painting and sculpture.
