Monday Morning Museum: Arte Povera

Arte Povera – Italy from the 1960s to the 1970s
Arte Povera (literally poor art) is a modern art movement. The term was introduced in Italy during the period of upheaval at the end of the 1960s, when artists were taking a radical stance. Artists began attacking the values of established institutions of government, industry, and culture, and even questioning whether art as the private expression of the individual still had an ethical reason to exist. – Wikipedia.org

In addition to Lucio Fontana (see art example below), another Art Povera artist is Alighiero e Boetti.

Spatial Concept by Lucio Fontana (1899-1968)
