The Arte Povera. Italian Landscape exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum in Manila has been extended until July 31st.
The exhibition, curated by Danilo Eccher and promoted by Italian Ambassador to Manila Giorgio Guglielmino, is an extraordinary collection of works by exponents of the Italian contemporary art movement “Arte Povera”, as well as the most important exhibition of Italian contemporary art ever organized in Southeast Asia.
The extension of the exhibition until July 31st will allow many more visitors to access the Metropolitan Museum, which is scheduled to reopen to the public on June 16th.
The exhibition catalogue (ed. Hopefulmonster, Turin) contains a long conversation between curator Danilo Eccher and recently deceased critic “creator” of Arte Povera Germano Celan. Celan’s intervention represents his last ever writing.
After Manila, in these days a further stage of the exhibition is being finalised in Kiev, which is scheduled to be inaugurated at the beginning of September 2020.
