.:. art  / body, experience, and images from the 1960s

Tue-Fri, 11am-8pm (tickets sold till an hour before closing time)

During the 1960s the Western World slowly realized that the WW2 was past and gone indeed. Dylan in the States, the Beatles in Europe, and the students' uprisings along 1968. In Italy the Arte Povera movement was born (their naming never been translated into "Poor Art" or "schlechte Kunst"), with artists like Mario Merz, Giuseppe Penone, Michelangelo Pistoletto or Piero Manzoni who refused to produce captivating artworks. Rather, the matter was bringing art and life together.
.:. Photography, film and video were widely used then, and can be counted among the Arte Povera media today. Finding, gathering, and exhibiting this vintage material has been a hard job, yet very worthwhile. The process originally started in Paris, and the result was first shown at the Jeu de Paume and LE BAL last year.
.:. The current edition at the Triennale adds two advantages: it is all visible under the same roof, and it is splendidly set. Not an easy exhibition to be fully enjoyed, perhaps. But so were the 1960s.
