Lucio Pozzi Lucio Pozzi was born in 1935 in Milan, Italy. After living a few years in Rome, where he studied architecture, he came to the United States in 1962, as a guest of the Harvard International Summer Seminar. He then settled in New York and took the US citizenship. He now shares his time between his Hudson (NY) and Valeggio s/M (VR) studios. In 1978 the Museum of Modern Art, New York, exhibited his early videotapes in one of the first single-artist exhibitions of the Projects: Video series. He occasionally writes and has taught at the Cooper Union, Yale Graduate “The Next 475 Years Of My Art And Life” is both a lecture and a work of art. I have delivered it for about thirty years always with the same title. Even though it contains a fixed nucleus of images, it changes over the years according to circumstances. In this event I move constantly and hop from one idea to the next not so much to explain but rather to trace the evolution of a way of thinking about art. I describe how I have turned upside down the canons of my generation’s Conceptual and Analytic art so as to make of them a point of departure instead of a point of arrival. Since then I live my art at the widest range, in all its possibilities. I have chosen to seek the intensity of inspiration by structuring a practice of continuous shifts from one mode of art making to the next. I believe that coherence of style and meaning does not depend on formula but surfaces uncalculated in the practice of the artist.” Lucio Pozzi | April 2018 Diaspora Acrylic on plywood Size variable - a proxy artwork | 2018
