From March 6, 2024, Palazzo Esposizioni and the city of Rome celebrate Carla Accardi (Trapani 1924-Rome 2014) on the occasion of the centenary of her birth, with a major anthological exhibition that, for the number and importance of the works exhibited - including the Triple Tent (1969-1971) from the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris - is the most comprehensive to date dedicated to the artist.

The exhibition, promoted by the Department of Culture of Rome Capital and the Special Company Palaexpo, is conceived, produced, and organized by the Special Company Palaexpo and realized with the collaboration of the Accardi Sanfilippo Archive and with the support of the Silvano Toti Foundation.

The exhibition and catalog are curated by Daniela Lancioni and Paola Bonani, curators of the Special Company Palaexpo.

A figure of absolute importance, Carla Accardi has been a protagonist of Italian and international visual culture for over half a century. Through her painting, continually redefined by radical choices, she has significantly contributed to the birth and development of new ways of understanding the work of art, from post-war abstraction to informal art, from environmental painting to an art marked by feminist demands, to the renewed joie de vivre embodied in paintings in the 1980s and in the large diptychs and triptychs of the 1990s and 2000s.


A unique case among Italian artists of her generation, she established significant dialogues with younger artists and intellectuals throughout the different seasons of her work.

The exhibition features about a hundred works, dated from 1946 to 2014, articulated in a chronological path that includes portions of installations conceived by Carla Accardi herself, deduced from photographic documentation that has also allowed the reconstruction of her personal room at the Venice Biennale in 1988.

Thanks to these 'insertions', in planning the exhibition it was possible to rely on the artist's 'exhibition writing', thus being able to restore the extreme freedom with which she conceived the relationship between work and space, dismantling conventions and inaugurating new practices.

The masterpieces were chosen with the idea of highlighting the germinal phases in Carla Accardi's work, as well as presenting the works in which the artist expressed herself with greater radicalism and which have proved seminal in the national and international context. Visitors will be able to admire her first oil paintings on canvas, never before exhibited. It will be possible to retrace the beginnings in the Forma group and verify the different phases of her work: the arrival at an original definition of the sign, the radicality of black and white, and the subsequent iridescent appearance of color, the dematerialization of the body of painting and the discovery of the transparent sicofoil surface, the environments of the 1960s that anticipated the times, the experiments of the 1970s and 1980s, up to the large diptychs of the 1990s and 2000s.
