    In 1961, when CARLA ACCARDI joined the 'Continuitá' group, she reintegrated color into her paintings and began painting on transparent sicofoil plastic instead of canvas. She showcased these new strategies at the 1964 Venice Biennale, where she was given her own room. By the mid-1960s, she was using these new materials sculpturally. Tenda (1965) and Triplice Tenda (1969) feature sheets of plastic assembled into a tent and covered with brightly colored brushstroke patterns. This phase of ACCARDI?s work, which was celebrated in the ?Ambiente/Arte? section of the 1976 Venice Biennale, would prove influential for the 'Arte Povera' movement of the late 1960s and 1970s?
