The collection of Nanda Vigo: works and connections among the most important European artists of the sixties


Two exhibitions in one: on the one hand the "elected affinities" of Nanda Vigo that is a hundred works by the most important artists of the 1950s and 1960s, including Accardi, Agnetti, Beuys, Christo, Dadamaino, Fabre, Fontana, Isgrò, Manzoni, Megert, Rotella, Schifano; on the other hand the work by Vigo.
The Raccolta Lercaro in Bologna hosts "Affinità elette" the works by those personalities that Nanda Vigo met and just "elected" as interlocutors of her work and simultaneously, are also the artists that chose Nanda Vigo as reference.
On show there are works echoing back to Milan in the 60s, where Vigo started her career when she was twenty and met other artists, including Piero Manzoni, who becomes her partner. And sixteen works by Manzoni are exposed from Achrome to the famous Shit box.
From the exhibit the personal and professional relationships of Vigo come out,  but especially the totally innovative character and the search of that group of European artists that drives them to make  the most interesting researches of the 50s and 60s. This group exhibition testifies a highly rich moment of the continental art  from that artistic dimension, which for nearly a decade has analyzed always new problems in order to reach always new expressive possibilities.

In addition to the works by Nanda Vigo in Affinità Elette are works by:
