WHEN THE DREAMER DIES, WHAT HAPPENS TO THE DREAM?

This is the very last call to visit Pier Paolo Cazzolari‘s exhibition at Marianne Boesky Gallery in New York. Untill June 2nd there is still time to go down Chelsea and admire one of the greatest artists ever existed. For this unique collaborative presentation, the two galleries’ spaces on 24th and 25th Street, respectively, will be temporarily conjoined to form one large space where Calzolari’s work is presented in depth. A member of the Arte Povera group, his 1969 text “La casa ideale,” and its realization through a series of works, is considered one of the seminal statements of the movement. Rapidly evolving beyond the confines of a defined movement, over the subsequent decades Calzolari continued to experiment, exploring his ongoing interest in light, matter and time. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in New York since 1988 and focus primarily on work created in the last 25 years. A catalogue published by Abrams with texts by Germano Celant, Massimiliano Gioni, and the artist is available at the Gallery. Run!
