Carla Accardi





Among the greatest exponents of abstract art, Carla Accardi moved to Rome in 1946, married in 1949 with Antonio Sanfilippo, who introduced her to the artistic world by introducing her to colleagues such as Consagra and Turcato. He also gets in touch with Dorazio, Guerrini, Maugeri and Perilli. He quickly captures the attention of important art critics and becomes part of the group known as Forma 1. With this he realizes many group exhibitions, in Italy and in other countries. His beginnings are mainly directed towards constructivist art, but since 1954 his works begin to consist of white segments on black backgrounds. In 1964, 1976 and 1978 he had a space entirely of his own at the Venice Biennale. With her solo and group exhibitions from the late seventies she will be considered one of the most important figures of the Forma 1 group and of the Italian avant-gardes of the fifties. In 1996 he became a member of the Brera Academy, and later advisor to the Commission of the Venice Biennale.
