In 2022, the gallery will have a one-person exhibition of Fabro’s work at 534 West 21st Street, the gallery’s original Chelsea location.
Luciano Fabro (born 1936 in Turin; died 2007 in Milan) is renowned for his radical reevaluation of sculptural form and his rigorous approach to spatial context, material, and meaning. A landmark figure of post-war Italian art, he was also a prolific writer, publishing numerous texts on art theory. Fabro's work has been the subject of one-person exhibitions at institutions around the world, such as Palais des Beaux-Arts, Brussels (1988); Fundació Miró, Barcelona (1990); Kunstmuseum, Luzern (1990-1991); the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (1992); Centre Pompidou, Paris (1996-1997); Tate Gallery, London (1997); Centro de Arte Hélio Oiticica, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2007); and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid (2014). Between 1972 and 1997, Fabro participated in eight editions of the Venice Biennale as well as three editions of documenta in Kassel. Fabro was the recipient of numerous prestigious awards including the Sikkens Prize, awarded from Rotterdam (1987), the Antonio Feltrinelli Prize from Rome (1993); and a Coutts Contemporary Art Award from Zurich (1994).
