Michelangelo Pistoletto: Origins and Consequences is curated by Alberto Fiz. Collating artworks from various private collections, the exhibition will focus on a selection of works spanning from 1958 to 2012, and will feature early figurative oils on canvas, works in charcoal on paper, acrylic, wood, bronze and glass, alongside silkscreens on stainless steel – the renowned ‘mirror works’ that defines his oeuvre.
Pistoletto is one of the most distinguished figures within the Arte Povera movement. The exhibition will examine Pistoletto’s early experimental period and elucidate the techniques that led to his mature work. It will feature three rare oil paintings on canvas depicting male portraits. These seminal works should be viewed as the hereditary seat of Pistoletto’s visual language; an arresting exploration of portraiture as well as an important precursor to the artist’s series of self-portraits on a reflective black background – his first works to explore the reflective device.
