Alberto Biasi

Alberto Biasi (Padova 1937)

He was born and currently lives in Padua, where he is one of the leading exponents of Italian kinetic art. His passion for artistic disciplines led him to graduate from high school and enroll in 1958 at the Venice Institute of Architecture, continuing in 1962 with the Advanced Course in Industrial Design. His artistic career began in the 1950s, when he founded the Ennea Group together with some architecture students. In 1960 he participated in the exhibition season of the Azimut Gallery in Milan and exhibited at the Circolo del Pozzetto in Padua with Enrico Castellani, Heinz Mack, Piero Manzoni and Manfredo Massironi, in the exhibition “The New Artistic Conception.” In the same year he formed Group N, together with Ennio Chiggio, Toni Costa, Edoardo Landi and Manfredo Massironi, which quickly gained prominence in major national and international exhibitions on kinetic art. In 1961 he joined the “Nuove Tendenze” movement and in 1962 participated with Group N in the traveling exhibition Arte Programmata, organized by Bruno Munari and hosted in Olivetti stores in Milan, Rome, and Venice, as well as in London and American museums. In 1964, Group N was invited to the XXXII Venice International Biennial and the following year to MoMA in New York to participate in the famous exhibition “The Responsive Eye.” The Group N experience ended in 1964 and Biasi continued his artistic research independently, focusing on perceptual investigation. In the late 1960s, Biasi made his first Politypes characterized by geometric shapes and iridescent colors. The late 1990s and early 2000s saw the birth of the Assemblaggi cycle, in which the artist juxtaposes and unites several canvases that find their balance precisely at the point of rupture. Biasi's artistic research continues to this day.
