Percorsi di Arte Povera
Claudio Cintoli, Alighiero Boetti, Alberto Burri, Mario Merz, Giulio Paolini
AICA | Andrea Ingenito Contemporary Art is pleased to present the exhibition Percorsi di Arte Povera – Claudio Cintoli, Alighiero Boetti, Alberto Burri, Mario Merz curated by Andrea Ingenito.
On display about twenty works to retrace the individual contribution given to the movement of Arte Povera by four very different artists, which have developed heterogeneous and complementary aspects, offering a remarkable stimulus to the national and international artistic research.
We have decided to focus on one of the most brilliant exponents, but also less known artist of the movement: Claudio Cintoli. Great experimenter of materials and techniques, Cintoli devoted himself to painting, drawing, set design, writing, examinating through his artistic research the ambiguity of the language and the transformation of the elements.
Influenced by Patafisica, conceived furthermore the ironic alter ego Marcanciel Stuprò, protagonist of numerous actions and performances. Despite his premature death in 1978, Cintoli has left an unforgettable sign in the Italian art of ‘60s and ‘70s.
In open dialogue with his works are presented the works of Alighiero Boetti, irreverent pioneer of Arte Povera, of Alberto Burri, trait d’union between Informal and Arte Povera, of Mario Merz, master of vital elements, of energy and of space and works of Giulio Paolini, noble explorer of the dialectic between present and past.
The exhibition is a deserved tribute to the many aspects of Arte Povera and a preview of the prestigious exhibition that MACRO – Museo d’Arte will dedicate to the unique artist Cintoli next June 21th.
