Fugues in color“, presented on the upper floor of the foundation, as its name suggests, is an exhibition exploring the use of color beyond the restrictions of the medium, with works that escape from the canvas and invade the surrounding spaces. The colors and shapes of these works help to discover new freedoms by consuming the surrounding spaces, such as the walls, floor, and ceiling.

Here we can see, among other things, the historic set of “curtains” that Sam Gilliam assembled in the late 1970s, a series of “deformed canvases” by Steven Parrino or the brush prints of Niele Toroni.
