METAMORPHOSIS: THE ALCHEMISTS OF MATTER. A POINT OF VIEW ON ARTE POVERA
“Arte Povera was born in Italy more than fifty years ago; now that more than half a century has gone by, a clear and broad vision, an agile perspective, allows us to fully evaluate Arte Povera. It was a widespread movement, enthralling, but also varied and free and magical, created by an important group of artists who once again demonstrated how much Italy, despite its individualism and dramatic corruption, is nonetheless a country that has no equals in the realm of imagination and creativity.” (Paolo Repetto)
Artists: Giovanni Anselmo, Alighiero Boetti, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Luciano Fabro, Jannis Kounellis, Mario Merz, Giulio Paolini, Pino Pasali, Giuseppe Penone, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Emilio Prini, Gilberto Zorio.
