The companies of Intrapresæ Collezione Guggenheim support the return of Tancredi Parmeggiani at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection with the exhibition My Weapon against the Atom Bomb is a Blade of Grass Tancredi. A Retrospective, on view from November 12, 2016 to March 13, 2017 and curated by Luca Massimo Barbero.
With over ninety works, this much-awaited retrospective marks the return to Venice of Tancredi Parmeggiani (Feltre 1927–Rome 1964), among the most original and prolific Italian painters of the second half of the twentieth century. Tancredi was the only artist, after Jackson Pollock, whom Peggy Guggenheim placed under contract, promoting his work, making it known to museums and collectors in the USA, and organizing shows, including one in her own home, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, in 1954. More than sixty years later Tancredi returns to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, his reputation now beyond question, with remarkable paintings that re-create, step by step in intimate galleries, between creative fury and lyrical expressionism, the brief but meteoric trajectory of this great postwar painter.
