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.”
