In 1979, in an article published on the Flash Art magazine, the Italian art critic Achille Bonito Oliva proposed a new trend in visual art - called Transavantgarde, or "beyond the avant-garde" - which would refuse conceptualism, and was meant to be more emotional and symbolic. Bonito Oliva's manifesto was influential, and the 1980s were the years of key Italian Transavantgarde artists like Sandro Chia, Francesco Clemente, Enzo Cucchi, Nicola De Maria, and Mimmo Paladino.
.:. The celebrations for the 150 years from the unification of Italy have provided the opportunity to organize this exhibition, which is the first Transavantgarde collective ever held in Milan. Visiting is an engaging experience - fun even for those who do not appreciate figurative art.
