“A lot of people in New York still don’t know much about Arte Povera,” she said at a talk at the gallery earlier this week. “That’s why it was so important to have the voices of the artists in the show too, to explain the work in their own way.” Printed quotations from them are sprinkled throughout the show.
Indeed one of the best shows I have seen in new York of recent. Beautifully crafted objects with thoughts. Bummed it is over but hope to see more soon!
