Arte Povera in Context

Arte Povera received renewed interest in 2017
with the fiftieth anniversary of art critic Germano
Celant’s seminal essay, 
Arte Povera: Notes for
a Guerrilla War
. This lecture will provide historical
overview and examine Arte Povera’s critical reception
in the United States, contextualizing it among other
international Post-War movements. Market prices
and important auctions will be discussed, as well as
conservation, authentication, and export issues.

This lecture coincides with our 16th Annual Award Luncheon honoring the founders of the museum, Magazzino Italian Art. 


Speaker: Gabriella Perez, 
Collection Manager & Chief Registrar,
Olnick Spanu Collection / Magazzino Italian Art Foundation
