The silent huntress. Italy as seen by Ileana Sonnabend
Written by Anna Trevisan   

awarhol-3734_ileana.jpgBorn in Bucharest of a wealthy Jewish family, Ileana Sonnabend from the start has perhaps conserved that which Achille Bonito Oliva has called a form of "cultural nomadism", allowing her to capture novelty in complete freedom. In her galleries in Paris and New York you will find New Dada and Pop Art, but also Festa, Schifano, the arte povera of Pistoletto, Paolini and Calzolari; Fontana, Rotella, Ontani.


Ileana Sonnabend "narrates by narrating her own experience"- as Germano Celant says - sustained a gaze which delights in the "sweetness" of life, in art, in beauty.

 

"An attitude to savour" and encounter the art of one’s own time with a special love of that "visual culture" sedimented in Italian art, to which this exposition pays tribute.
