FEBRUARY 2022 - MAY 2022

The exhibition spans the full breadth of Giorgio Griffa’s practice, bringing together highlights from the artist’s three major bodies of work: his minimal canvases of the 70s; his large gestural works from the 80s; and his lively rhythmic paintings from the last decade inspired by modernist poetry and avant-garde music.  

FEBRUARY 2017 - MAY 2017
Giorgio Griffa’s second exhibition at Galleria Lorcan O’Neill retraces the artist’s history from the end of the 1960s to the present day through a brief retrospective of works. From the radical rigour of the 70s to the more expressive and liberal gestures of today, the works come together in a sequence of colour and signs. 
Like a Bird, Not a Feather
JUNE 2016 - SEPTEMBER 2016
The title of this exhibition, a phrase by Paul Valery which is quoted by Italo Calvino in the notes of his Norton Lecture on “lightness”, expresses the idea that to fly, to leave the bounds of gravity, to reach higher and to head for the skies is to expend effort, concentration, and volition.

Giorgio Griffa (Turin, 1936) is one of the most radical and articulate artists of the avant-garde working in Italy today. This exhibition, entirely of work from the past year, displays an astonishing burst of creative and intellectual energy that has produced a series of paintings on unstretched canvas unified by references to the Golden Mean (Canone Aureo).

Abstract painter Giorgio Griffa, closely linked to the Arte Povera movement, first became known in the 1960s as part of an Italian generation of artists who sought to radically redefine painting. At the age of 81, Griffa continues to make work in his studio in Turin. This exhibition at the Camden Arts Cenre in London spans the breadth of the artist’s practice, incorporating works from the 1960s through to today.

Giorgio Griffa’s solo show at the Fondation Van Gogh in Arles presents old and new works, including a selection of his recent, large-format Canone aureo (Golden Ratio) canvases. Among them is Canone aureo 705 (VVG), created in 2015 specially for this exhibition and paying dazzling homage to Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night of 1889.

One of the most radical and articulate artists of the avant-garde working in Italy today, Giorgio Griffa became known in the late 60s for his paintings reduced to their essential components: canvas, colours and brushstrokes.
