The Museum of Modern Art
Art 11 West 53 Street New York, NY 10019
In conjunction with the Museo Reina Sofia and the Tate Modern in London, MoMA will be hosting a 3 month retrospective amassing the largest collection of the Italian’s artwork outside of Italy.
“Organized chronologically, the exhibition will span Boetti’s entire career beginning with his sculptural works, or objects as he preferred to call them, comprised of everyday materials including wood, cardboard, and aluminum. Brought together (many for the first time since Boetti’s seminal exhibition at Galleria Christian Stein in Turin in 1967) and installed in a dense configuration inspired by the original clustered presentation, these early works convey the material experiments of the period as well as notions of measurement and chance that Boetti would play with and revise throughout his career. While Boetti is often chiefly affiliated with the Arte Povera moment, Alighiero Boetti: Game Plan will consider Boetti beyond these brief years.”
GrandLife has long been fans of Boetti’s multi-medium work, so do what we did and get up there ASAP, it’s only around till October.
