Francesco Clemente, George Condo, 
Chuck Connelly, Julio Galán,
and Daniel Lezama in the Pellizzi Family Collections

May 3 – September 14, 2015


Mana Contemporary and the Eileen S. Kaminsky Family Foundation present Francesco Clemente, George Condo, Chuck Connelly, Julio Galán, and Daniel Lezama in the Pellizzi Family Collections, a showcase of remarkable paintings


Italian anthropologist Francesco Pellizzi has amassed a trove of ethnographic art and artifacts over the past four decades. Highlights from his singular assemblage are featured in the Pellizzi Family Collections. The exhibition features works by Italian painter Francesco Clemente, American painters George Condo and Chuck Connelly, and Mexican painters Julio Galán and Daniel Lezama. Like Pellizzi’s collection, the exhibition’s themes span mysticism, mythology, history, and romanticism.

Due to a tremendous response, this show has been extended, and will be recurated in Mana Contemporary's first floor gallery.
