Dancing, talking, singing, playing music, walking, writing, eating, screaming, sleeping... we’ve seen artists do all this and much more, at museums, galleries, art fairs, and foundations. In books, catalogues, and art history texts, we’ve read about works made of bodies, gestures, movements, and actions that unfold in space and time. We’re talking about performance art: a constantly evolving language that artists have always used to respond to change, the “avant-avant-garde” that even today “continues to defy definition, remaining as unpredictable and provocative as it ever was.” –Bruna Roccasalva

Time after Time, Space after Space, realized in co-production with the Museo del Novecento in Milan, is the first edition of Furla Series, the project that from 2017 sees Fondazione Furla engaged in the realization of exhibitions and events dedicated to some of the most important national and international artists, in collaboration with major Italian art institutions. The partnership with the Museo del Novecento is a unique opportunity to meet past, present, and future that activates a dialogue between the masters of the twentieth century and the protagonists of the contemporary art scene. From this premise comes the idea of reflecting on performativity starting from a relationship with the work of Lucio Fontana, which marked a fundamental point in the recognition of the artistic value of the gesture, paving the way for subsequent spatial and performative research. The book contains an introductory text by the curator of the project and five essays dedicated to each artist that explore their approach to the practice of performance. For each artist is provided an extensive photographic documentation of the performance held in Sala Fontana.
