PAPER MEDIA: BOETTI, CALZOLARI, KOUNELLIS
The exhibition brings together ten rarely seen works on paper from the Olnick Spanu Collection. As with many of the artists associated with Arte Povera, working with various drawing and printing techniques was fundamental to the practices of Boetti, Calzolari, and Kounellis, who regarded their works on paper as finished pieces rather than preparatory steps to create an artwork. In the works on view Jannis Kounellis iterated a new alphabet of signs and images, showing the formal and material experimentation from the 1960s and 1970s.
