Sprovieri is delighted to present Magie Straordinarie: Works on Paper by Alighiero Boetti. Exhibiting fourteen works from 1965 to 1983, this exhibition explores Alighieri Boetti’s career, with early examples from several seminal series that have rarely been seen before. The exhibits are works on paper, mainly black and white, made with pencil, India ink and - in the case of the well known Lavori Postali - envelopes, which encapsulate with their simplicity of media the playful performative and participative quality of Boetti’s practice. 

 

 

Artist ( Description ): 

Alighiero Boetti (Turin 1940-Rome 1994) is one of the most influential Post War artists. After starting his career with the Arte Povera movement in 1972 he dissociated himself and travelled to Rome where he collaborated with several artists and explored art through an extremely varied range of means. In 2001 the Venice Biennial Pavilion was entirely dedicated to his work. His work has been exhibited in several large-scale shows including a travelling retrospective in 2012 at MoMA, New York, Tate Modern, London, and Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid.
