Laura Mattioli: Tour of Arte Povera at Hauser & Wirth
11 October 2017 / 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
On Wednesday October 11, CIMA President and Founder Laura Mattioli will be leading a walkthrough of the ARTE POVERA exhibition now on view at Hauser & Wirth in Chelsea.
Curated by Ingvild Goetz, the exhibition—which spans three floors—offers a wide-ranging overview of Italy’s highly innovative post-war art movement, as seen through the eyes of one of its most significant collectors. The exhibition coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Arte Povera movement and features more than 150 works by artists Claudio Abate, Giovanni Anselmo, Alighiero Boetti, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Giorgio Colombo, Luciano Fabro, Jannis Kounellis, Mario Merz, Paolo Mussat Sartor, Giulio Paolini, Pino Pascali, Giuseppe Penone, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Emilio Prini, and Gilberto Zorio.
Mattioli will discuss two of the movement’s most significant artists, Giovanni Anselmo and Giulio Paolini, and shed light on the sociopolitical motivations behind the radical works on view. Paolini was one of the subjects of last season’s exhibition at CIMA, Giorgio de Chirico – Giulio Paolini / Giulio Paolini – Giorgio de Chirico.
Free; RSVP required.
Please note this event will take place at 548 West 22nd Street.
