Arte Povera: Homage to Amalfi ’68

Fifty years ago, a three-day exhibition and happening in Amalfi changed the course of contemporary art in Italy. Arte Povera reacted against the dominance of Minimalism and Pop Art and engaged in a type of guerrilla art-making emphasizing process and the use of humble, inexpensive materials. This installation pays tribute to that groundbreaking event and features a number of works originally exhibited in Amalfi.
