Texts by Marco Meneguzzo, Agostino Bonalumi

I Wish to Meet Architects offers a profound insight of the practice of Agostino Bonalumi (1935–2013), focusing in particular on the environmental aspects of his work. The book is published in conjunction with Bonalumi’s homonym retrospective at Cortesi Gallery (London, 15 March – 21 May 2016).

The title of the exhibition, “I Wish to Meet Architects” (Vorrei incontrare gli architetti) is taken from a show Bonalumi held in 1969, and reflects the artist’s passionate desire to seek new spacial solutions to his art, further corroborated by the conception—with Enrico Castellani—of tele estroflesse (extroflexed canvas). This new linguistic system aimed to open painting to a broader commingling of sculpture and architecture in one large “habitable” creation, in accordance with the modern tradition of the “synthesis of arts”, on which he has built upon years of extraordinary research and activity.
