Giorgio Griffa – Works: 1965-2015



Giorgio Griffa – Works: 1965-2015

A talk with Andrea Bellini, Hans Ulrich Obrist and Martin Clark

One of the most radical and articulate artists of the neo-avant-garde working in Italy today, Giorgio Griffa (Turin, 1936) came to prominence in the late 1960s for his intense and highly concentrated paintings reduced to their essential components: canvas, pigment and brushstrokes. This comprehensive monograph aims — through a series of essays by Andrea Bellini, Luca Cerizza, Laura Cherubini, Martin Clark, Suzanne Cotter, and Chris Dercon, a conversation between Griffa and Hans Ulrich Obrist, and a selection of artist’s writings and a chronology compiled by Marianna Vecellio — to highlight the very diverse features and extraordinary richness of Griffa’s paintings. Published by Mousse on the occasion of the cycle of exhibitions dedicated to Giorgio Griffa at Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneva; Bergen Kunsthall; Fondazione Giuliani, Rome; and Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Serralves, Porto.
