An exclusive view of the first solo exhibition in the UK of Emilio Vedova (1919-2006), one of the most influential abstract Italian artists of his time.
The exhibition will reunite his five monumental canvases from the landmark documenta 7 exhibition in 1982, curated by Rudi Fuchs. These paintings will be shown alongside a selection of important works from the 1980s, a period considered the pinnacle of the artist’s career. Presented in association with the Fondazione Emilio e Annabianca Vedova, this exhibition marks the fourth decade since his participation in documenta 7 in Kassel and the 40th Venice Biennale, held in the same year.
Founded in 1983, Thaddaeus Ropac has galleries across Europe and Asia, located in London, Paris, Salzburg and Seoul. Specialising in contemporary art and representing over 60 artists, the gallery supports and showcases the careers of some of the most influential artists today with a wide-ranging programme of over 40 exhibitions curated at the six extensive and historic gallery spaces each year.
The view includes a talk by a gallery representative followed by a drinks reception
