Waiting for "Edmondo Bacci: Energy and Light"
Waiting for "Edmondo Bacci: Energy and Light"

As we look forward to the opening of Edmondo Bacci: Energy and Light on April 1, Curator Chiara Bertola discusses the work of this Venetian Spazialismo artist.

Edmondo Bacci’s painting captured the attention of leading Italian and international art critics and collectors. Among them, of course, was Peggy Guggenheim, who in describing his works claimed “they are children of today. They are dynamic. They are the atomic bomb on canvas. They burst with light energy and color.”
