This event has ended.

The exhibition, organized by art historian and critic Adachiara Zevi, includes works from the mid-1950s to the present, including several new works made specifically for this exhibition. Accardi is best known for developing a unique lexicon of signs, fictional abstracted calligraphic marks used in repetition to communicate shifting dualities. When combined with her colorful or monochromatic surfaces the result is unlimited amalgamations that allow the artist to showcase the endless possibilities available through abstraction. The combination keeps Accardi's paintings dynamic and changing. It is this dynamism that significantly influenced many of the Arte Povera artists in Italy and throughout Europe.
