Alighiero Boetti: Minimum/Maximum

Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice

12 May - 12 Jul 2017

The Istituto di Storia dell’Arte della Fondazione Giorgio Cini, in collaboration with the Archivio Alighiero Boetti, present an original juxtaposition between the minimum and maximum formats of the renowned Italian artist’s most iconic cycles of work in order to explore his artistic process and iconography. From one to many, micro to macro, and private to public, this exhibition explores Boetti’s dialectical approach to art. Divided into 11 sections with more than 20 artworks, the exhibition contains Boetti’s most iconic works – Ricami (embroideries), Aerei (planes), Mappe (maps), Tutto (everything) and Biro (works made with a ballpoint pen) – as well as some less famous cycles such as the Bollini colorati (coloured stickers), and the Copertine (magazine covers). Find out more about the Alighiero Boetti exhibition from the Fondazione Giorgio Cini’s website.
