FLAVIO LUCCHINI: I START OVER AT 90
Every month a new theme and a new subheading. However the recurrent title for the whole 2018 “I start over at 90
”, recalls Flavio Lucchini’s
long artistic itinerary, thirty years of experimentations in atelier, after forty years as art director and protagonist of the fashion publishing world. At ninety years old Flavio Lucchini takes a challenge with the exhibition of his essential work of his history as sculptor, many unpublished and never on show before ones divided by themes. “I start over at 90”, along with artist’s proof, preparatory sketches, maquettes, drawings, artist’s books and catalogues, press releases, memories, meetings, revisits, initiatives abroad, recounts an artist’s life that gave a strong contribution to the city’s continuous cultural growth. “In 1919 Duchamp used to say that art is dead. Thousands of people in line to see exhibitions prove the opposite. I am one of them, but not just that. My Totems
everything I created as artist are art works created from the world seen through fashion. It seems like yesterday however without realising I have reached my ninety years. I still want to live and see like before”. “Fashion
” is the first exhibition subheading of the itinerary, it gathers some pieces of the most significant periods, anticipating what will be on show, extensively, in the forthcoming months. By appointment, it is possible to visit Superstudio Più’s large Undergallery
storage where hundreds of his art works are kept, from first experimentations to the most recent ones.
