Entrare nell'opera. Processes and Performative Attitudes in Arte Povera

In the 1960s and 70s both society and art underwent dynamic changes. In Italy, the link between art, culture and radical-reforming efforts was particularly strong.

In the 1960s and 70s both society and art underwent dynamic changes. In Italy, the link between art, culture and radical-reforming efforts was particularly strong.

 

The Arte Povera movement gave rise to artistic approaches that poeticised everyday life and honed people's sense of time in an attempt to unite ephemeral action and material objects. The actions of the Arte Povera artists eclectically interwove elements of process, performance and theatre.

 

Live animals, such as horses or a white peacock, appeared in exhibition situations, embedded in narrative processes. A horse rider wearing a mask of Apollo sat motionless on his steed in a gallery; a man raced through gallery spaces on roller-skates, watched by an albino dog; an actor recited Flaubert in a mirrored cube; gigantic megaphones sounded out for justice; large parasols rotated in a cosmic constellation. Streets and forests, palaces and garages became venues, as did the sky, explored in a Cessna 175.

 

The exhibition Entrare nell'opera [Entering the Work] illustrates the diversity of the art and cognitive processes involved, allowing visitors to be a part of this living sphere of action. In addition to legendary artworks, the show also features several barely known photographic and film documents.

 

The exhibition, conceived in close collaboration with the artists or their estates, is a production of Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein in cooperation with MAMC+ / Musée d'art moderne et contemporain, Saint-Étienne, France, and will be on view there from 30 November 2019 on. Curated by Christiane Meyer-Stoll with Nike Bätzner, Maddalena Disch and Valentina Pero. The show is accompanied by a publication that presents the first comprehensive account of the actions of Arte Povera.

 

Artists in the exhibition:

 

Giovanni Anselmo (*1934), Alighiero e Boetti (1940–1994), Pier Paolo Calzolari (*1943), Luciano Fabro (1936–2007), Jannis Kounellis (1936–2017), Eliseo Mattiacci (*1940), Mario Merz (1925–2003), Marisa Merz (*1926), Giulio Paolini (*1940), Pino Pascali (1935–1968), Giuseppe Penone (*1947), Michelangelo Pistoletto (*1933), Emilio Prini (1943–2016) and Gilberto Zorio (*1944).
