ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:

The exhibition presents a selection of 25 paintings and drawings by Bice Lazzari. As part of 2013 Year of Italian Culture in the United States, an initiative organized by Italy’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Embassy of Italy, Washington, D.C., this exhibition showcases Lazzari’s breadth and marks her as one of the most innovative abstract painters of the 20th century. Reflecting her lifelong passion for music, the lines and forms in Lazzari’s compositions create rhythms that interact and make her works come alive, akin to musical notes.
