Alighiero Boetti Travels from Tate Modern to MoMA
Tags: Contemporary, New York, Upcoming Exhibitions
Having begun at Madrid’s Reina Sofía and subsequently at London’s Tate Modern, Alighiero Boetti: Game Plan has opened at MoMA to continued good reviews. The exhibition is the largest presentation of the artist’s works outside of Italy and spans his entire career, from 1940 to 1994. It is arguably the most extensive exhibition ever hosted of an artist associated with the Arte Povera movement.
Organized chronologically, it begins with works from Turin, his hometown and continues with works influenced by his global travels, from Ethiopia and Guatemala to Afghanistan, where his iconic maps composed of world flags were created.
Game Plan also highlights an important aspect of Boetti’s career: his Biro (ballpoint pen) works, including Aeiri, 1989 (shown).
The exhibition runs until 1 October.
