Arte Povera: Italian Landscape captures one of the most pivotal points in the history of Italian contemporary art in the 60s through the 70s. The Arte Povera movement broke boundaries in traditional art making through new engagement with audiences and an experimental approach in making life and everyday objects integral to art.
The exhibit features ten Italian artists who gave birth to the Arte Povera movement: Jannis Kounellis, Marisa Merz, Mario Merz, Giovanni Anselmo, Luciano Fabro, Giuseppe Penone, Alighiero Boetti, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Gilberto Zorio, Pier Paolo Calzolari, and two younger artists from a new generation, Francesco Arena, and Gianni Caravaggio.
The Metropolitan Museum of Manila joins the art world in mourning the passing of art historian, critic and curator Germano Celant, who championed the Italian art movement Arte Povera in the late 1960s.
