1961: An Affair with New York

In 1961 the world was in a state of flux: the post-war era was coming to a close, and the Cold War and the Space Age had commenced. Kennedy became President, a Cosmonaut reached Space, the Berlin Wall was built. It was also the year that the artist Lucio Fontana made his first and only trip to New York City, resulting in a series of works that reference the mirrored surfaces and frenetic pace of a city amidst its mid-century glory. Fontana’s tribute to the metropolis demonstrates the universality of his spatialist art. He used the visual language of New York City to explore the infinite.
