"Arte Povera: Art from Italy 1967-2002"
2002-08-23 until 2002-11-10
Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney
Sydney, , AU Australia

ARTE POVERA: Art from Italy (1967 – 2002) is a major exhibition documenting the evolution of one of the most important art movements to have emerged since the Second World War – Arte Povera. This exhibition presents work by eleven artists who came to prominence in the late 1960s and early 70s through their association with the Arte Povera movement. Included in this exhibition are a number of significant early works from the artists as well as more recent works, tracing their careers from the rise of the movement to the present day

Arte Povera artists - Giovanni Anselmo, Alighiero Boetti, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Luciano Fabro, Jannis Kounellis, Mario Merz, Marisa Merz, Giulio Paolini, Giuseppe Penone, Michelangelo Pistoletto and Gliberto Zorio – are recognised for their diverse and freely experimental work; their radical and at the time revolutionary use of everyday or organic materials such as stone, sponge, wool, wood, cloth, steel, wax, felt or cement; and their fusion of nature and culture in a reflection of contemporary life.

This exhibition has as its base an expansive collection held by Italy’s Castello di Rivoli Contemporary Art Museum, situated in Rivoli, Turin. Castello di Rivoli Director Ida Gianelli and Chief Curator Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev have worked closely with the MCA to develop this exhibition. Additional works for the exhibition have been drawn from other important collections in Turin such as the Galleria Civica d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, as well as from the artists’ own collections.

The Museum will present a number of special events and art talks in association with this exhibition.
