Alien Skins: Experimental Italian Painting of the 1960s

Sometimes the quietest and most unassuming exhibitions turn out to be the most fascinating, if not the strangest.

Tucked away on the third floor of Sperone Westwater’s Bowery building, there’s a show titled Post-War Italian Art: Accardi, Dorazio, Fontana, Schifano. That’s it. No jazzy tagline like “Treasures of Proto-Arte Povera” or “Secrets of Euro-Neo-Pop.” Just Post-War Italian Art: Accardi, Dorazio, Fontana, Schifano.
