Irma Blank “BLANK”

Fondazione ICA Milano hosts a retrospective exhibition of the Italo-German artist Irma Blank, curated by Johana Carrier and Joana P. R. Neves. The show has had seven iterations, each one adapted to its new exhibition space. The culmination of this touring exhibition is its final version at Fondazione ICA Milano, of particular importance because Irma Blank has lived in Milan since 1973. Therefore, this last show associates a universal stance of her work with the deeply personal, but from the visitor’s perspective. The works selected for this exhibition focus on identity and critical mirroring through Blank’s lifelong work of drawing languages without words. Thus, her work creates and proposes a form of communication beyond specific language.
