Further Biographical Context for Claudio Bellari
Claudio Bellari was born in 1959, grew up during the 1970s and was influenced by the artistic culture of the time. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and progress in the arts, most often characterised as a response to the dominant stresses of the previous decade. Conceptual art emerged as a influential movement, and was in part an evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the works of art into the spacious outdoors, taking creative production away from commodities and looking to engage with the earliest ideas of environmentalism. Process art combined elements of conceptualism with other formal considerations, creating mysterious and experimental bodies of work. Expressive figurative painting began to regain prominence for the first time since the decline of Abstract Expressionism twenty years prior, especially in Germany where Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz became highly powerful figures worldwide. New York maintained an important position in the international art scene, ensuring that international artists continued to gravitate to the galleries, bars and downtown scene there. International movements began to gain importance included feminism, which translated strongly into the visual culture, and photorealism which had begun in the 1960s and enjoyed significant commercial and critical achievements. For the first time painters and sculptors from Latin America were embraced by the leading critical and institutional levers in New York.
