With Formalisms II we want to present a careful selection of paintings, sculptures and drawings with the aim to offer a varied dialogue between works by artists who are very different from each other.
The main objective of this second edition of Formalisms is to approach art from the perspective of 'form' and not 'content'. Thanks to the juxtaposition of formal elements like 'line', 'color', 'space' together with other more compositional formal aspects like 'balance', 'order', 'proportion' or 'structure' we can establish links between artists, works, periods and techniques that other types of reading would distance one from the other.
The result of this proposal is to show how a formal analysis of an artistic composition contributes to generate links between works that 'a priori' might seem to us that do not exist.
