Arte Povera. Curated by Ingvild Goetz

Hauser & Wirth presents with Arte Povera. Curated by Ingvild Goetz a comprehensive overview of Italy’s highly innovative twentieth-century art movement, curated by one of its most important collectors. Ringing in a new era of artistic practice, Arte Povera emerged fifty years ago against the backdrop of a political and social reawakening that defined Italy in the 1960s and ‘70s, and challenged traditional definitions of art by championing radical approaches to form and process. The exhibition in New York features more than 150 works from many of Arte Povera’s leading figures from the Sammlung Goetz.

With Giovanni Anselmo, Alighiero Boetti, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Luciano Fabro, Jannis Kounellis, Mario Merz, Giulio Paolini, Pino Pascali, Giuseppe Penone, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Emilio Prini, Gilberto Zorio as well as Claudio Abate, Giorgio Colombo and Paolo Mussat Sartor.
