Abstract:

Since the 1960s artists from various countries have positioned themselves increasingly within a system of art that is now global in its reach. However, Italian artists in particular have, with some exceptions, resisted expressing a certain putative artistic "Italian-ness," thus undermining the global system's tendency to identify artists, artworks, and movements according to nationality. The expression "Italian art" names quite an impervious referent: it exists in a kind of limbo, perpetually suspended between abysmal default and epiphanic excess, its identity as a subject neither ascertained nor denied. Italian artworks therefore neither correspond to a preexisting array of local attributes nor resonate with a discernible web of global meanings.
