Lucio Pozzi<br />

Lucio Pozzi was born in 1935 in Milan, Italy.<br />

After living a few years in Rome, where he<br />

studied architecture, he came to the United<br />

States in 1962, as a guest of the Harvard<br />

International Summer Seminar. He then settled<br />

in New York and took the US citizenship. He<br />

now shares his time between his Hudson (NY)<br />

and Valeggio s/M (VR) studios.<br />

In 1978 the Museum of Modern Art, New York,<br />

exhibited his early videotapes in one of the<br />

first single-artist exhibitions of the Projects:<br />

Video series. He occasionally writes and has<br />

taught at the Cooper Union, Yale Graduate<br />

“The Next 475 Years Of My Art And Life” is<br />

both a lecture and a work of art. I have<br />

delivered it for about thirty years always with<br />

the same title. Even though it contains a fixed<br />

nucleus of images, it changes over the years<br />

according to circumstances. In this event I<br />

move constantly and hop from one idea to the<br />

next not so much to explain but rather to<br />

trace the evolution of a way of thinking about<br />

art. I describe how I have turned upside down<br />

the canons of my generation’s Conceptual and<br />

Analytic art so as to make of them a point of<br />

departure instead of a point of arrival. Since<br />

then I live my art at the widest range, in all<br />

its possibilities. I have chosen to seek the<br />

intensity of inspiration by structuring a<br />

practice of continuous shifts from one mode<br />

of art making to the next. I believe that<br />

coherence of style and meaning does not<br />

depend on formula but surfaces uncalculated<br />

in the practice of the artist.”<br />
