Winfred Gaul, Imi Knoebel, Christian Megert, Bruno Munari, Nahum Tevet ASTRAZIONE: LE 5 VIE Oggi - 4 Feb 2022 MAAB Gallery
via Nerino 3
Milano

This exhibition collects the works of five artists who, covering the Modernist era to contemporary times, have worked on the idea of compositional geometry, of conceptual clarity and expressive rigour, that didn’t close in upon itself but rather was capable of holding together vision and illusion, ingenuity and transgression, tradition and innovation. 

The works of Bruno Munari, Imi Knoebel, Nahum Tevet, Christian Megert, and Winfred Gaul represent art’s attempt to constantly modify the vision of a world that, as proven by the “Age of Extremes,” is ever changing, challenging our perceptive habits, and opening time and again to new cognitive challenges and new interpretative constellations. 

The artists on show seek an anchorage in the expressive linearity of geometry, which must here be intended in a broader sense, capable of overcoming Euclidean rationality to encompass more heterodox visions such as fractal geometry and the geometry of hyperbolic polygons. What emerges are five paths to abstraction and five visions of a fluid, dematerialized world the consistency of which no longer simply resembles a solid but also possesses the evanescence of a cloud, moving and mutating in the sky.
