Discovered by U.S. patron Peggy Guggenheim, the explosive work of Venetian artist Edmondo Bacci became largely forgotten for decades until the Peggy Guggenheim Collection dedicated an important solo exhibition to the artist, Edmondo Bacci: Energy and Light, curated by Chiara Bertola.
The documentary produced by Maco Film sheds light on Bacci Spazialismo works, exploring the powerful color, energy, explosions, and light that distinguish his astral pictorial universe, much admired by the U.S. patron in the context of the postwar Venetian Spazialismo movement.
Introverted and shy, the documentary introduces Bacci through the words of the most eminent curators and collectors living in Venice, his family archive, and memories and images of the city and its industrial outskirts, which sparked his imagination and led him to become a world-renowned artist at the time.
