Arte Povera is one of the most influential, and yet “under the radar”, art movements to come out of Italy during the last century. Since its appearance in the late 1960s, the work of Giuseppe Penone, Marisa Merz, and Jannis Kounellis, among others, have strongly influenced the international contemporary art scene, revolutionizing the ways artists think about materials and institutions. Arte Povera radically changed the history of conceptual art through its political views on capitalism, social structures, urbanization, and environmental degradation, pioneering artistic approaches that still today define the practices of many internationally well-known artists.

This is the first in a series of three lectures to explore the key artists and major innovations introduced by Arte Povera. The series looks at the international and local historical contexts from which Arte Povera emerged, starting from an exploration of the philosophical and artistic ideas that linked Northern Italy to France and the rest of the world. The remaining lectures will respectively focus on the importance Arte Povera assigned to everyday materials and to the fraught relationship between urbanization and ecology.

The remaining two lectures of this series will be presented on the following dates: February 11th and March 10th.

Giovanni Aloi is an art historian in modern and contemporary art. He currently teaches at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Sotheby's Institute of Art New York and London, and Tate Galleries. He regularly lectures on modern and contemporary art at the Art Institute of Chicago. His work has been translated in Italian, Chinese, French, Russian, Polish, and Spanish.
