Lygia Pape

Fondazione Carriero
From 28 March to 21 July 2019, Fondazione Carriero presents Lygia Pape, curated by Francesco Stocchi, the first solo exhibition ever held in an Italian institution on one of the leading figures of Neoconcretism in Brazil, organized in close collaboration with Estate Projeto Lygia Pape.

Fifteen years after the death of Lygia Pape (Rio de Janeiro, 1927-2004), Fondazione Carriero sets out to narrate and explore the career of the Brazilian artist, emphasizing her eclectic, versatile approach. Across a career span of 45 years, Pape came to grips with multiple languages, absorbing the lessons of European modernism and blending them with the cultural tenets of her country, generating a very personal synthesis of artistic practices.

Sol LeWitt
Between the Lines

Fondazione Carriero
Fondazione Carriero is pleased to present Sol LeWitt. Between the Lines, an exhibition curated by Francesco Stocchi and Rem Koolhaas - as a curator, for the first time ever - and organized in close partnership with the Estate of Sol LeWitt.
One decade after the death of Sol LeWitt (Hartford, 1928 – New York, 2007), "Between the Lines" aims to offer a new perspective on the American artist’s practice. With a considerable body of work spanning his entire career – from 7 famous Wall Drawings to 15 sculptures – and starting from the peculiarities of the rooms at the Foundation, the exhibition explores the relationship between LeWitt’s work and architecture.

Pascali Sciamano

Fondazione Carriero
The exhibition, aims to present the work of Pino Pascali (Bari, 1935 – Rome, 1968) in dialogue with what is commonly called “tribal art.” It allows visitors to explore the artist’s creative approach through his bond with African culture, beginning from his interest in primitivism as opposed to the myths of modern society and attention to totemism, the phenomena of animal/individual, and the animistic notion of nature. "Pascali sciamano" is a surprising exploration through the career of Pascali between 1966 and 1968 that will allow visitors to discover less known works, some of which have never been shown previously.
24/03 - 24/06 2017


Fondazione Carriero
The exhibition gathers together the works of the artist Albert Oehlen and six young artists, of his former students: Peppi Bottrop, Andreas Breunig, Max Frintrop, Fabian Ginsberg, Yuji Nagai, and David Ostrowski. It is curated by Francesco Stocchi with Albert Oehlen himself.
By presenting around 24 works, the show is an overview exclusively devoted to painting, unfolding almost like the story of an intense creative exchange born at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf, where Albert Oehlen taught from 2000 to 2009.

Fontana · Leoncillo

Fondazione Carriero
Leoncillo and Lucio Fontana are invited to participate in the XXVII Venice Biennale (1954), each with his own room. The colored levels expand across the space, enlivening the matter with an inspiration that foreshadows the informal slant and in-depth research of substance in subsequent years. Roberto Longhi presents twenty-two sculptures reminiscent of cubism by Leoncillo, while Giampiero Giani introduces the Sculture spaziali by Fontana, who exhibits not only the “holes” but also some works from the 1930s and 1940s.
06/04 - 09/07 2016


Fondazione Carriero
Objects do not exist due to their physical presence, but thanks to what we see.
imaginarii, the inaugural exhibition at the Fondazione Carriero, analyzes the contemporary notion
of space and its experience.
Three artists—Gianni Colombo, Giorgio Griffa,
 Davide Balula — are compared in a trialogue, which, in itself, is inaccessible, if not through direct experience of physical space. If the object and its image are finite, our experience of these is infinite and difficult to enjoy through reproduction techniques. The show investigates this spatial dimension.

La fondazione
The Fondazione aims to promote, enhance, and spread modern and contemporary art and culture, acting as a cultural pole in collaboration with the most affirmed and innovative artists, devoting space also to up-and-coming artists and figures from the past who deserve to be rediscovered. With an approach that combines rediscovery and experimentation, research in all forms of intellectual expression are accompanied by commissioning new works.

The Fondazione is born from the great willingness to share and the founder Giorgio Carriero’s passion for art. A particular aspect of the foundation is that it is not bound by displaying
a private collection, but rather aims to be a
center where art is made and culture is spread, with activities ranging from organizing exhibitions through new commissions to publishing catalogues, holding debates and conferences open to the public including specific events intended to educate and train.
