Arte Povera

(movement, 1960’s-1968)

“Arte Povera”,”arme Kunst”.The term ‘Arte Povera’ was introduced by the Italian art critic and curator, Germano Celant, in 1967. His pioneering texts and a series of key exhibitions provided a collective identity for a number of young Italian artists based in Turin, Milan, Genoa and Rome. They were working in radically new ways, breaking with the past and entering a challenging dialogue with trends in Europe and America.

Zero to InfinityGuggenheim: Arte Povera

Centre Pompidou: Arte Povera

Les acteurs de Arte Povera, refusant de se prêter au jeu de l’assignation d’une identité, c’est-à-dire de se laisser enfermer dans une définition, rejettent la qualification de mouvement, pour lui préférer celle d’attitude.
