Curator Alberto Salvadori has selected Richard Saltoun Gallery to exhibit in miart's Decades, a section dedicated to each decade of the 20th Century.
The 1970s was a decade defined by new ways of political and personal expression, and Richard Saltoun will present works by artists who made the body as their point of reference in exploring these new aesthetics of expression. Titled Body Art & Performance, the exhibition has been curated by Paola Ugolini and will showcase a unique selection of works by artists using performance as their primary medium.
