Michelangelo Pistoletto at Blenheim Palace



Michelangelo Pistoletto at Blenheim Palace

The Blenheim Art Foundation, in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute, is delighted to present Michelangelo Pistoletto at Blenheim Palace, a solo exhibition running from 15th September – 31st December 2016 celebrating the extensive oeuvre of Italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto.

The show spans Pistoletto’s prolific fitty-year career, exhibiting painting, sculpture, and new, site-specific installations within the palace and the surrounding grounds. The show also introduces visitors to the themes which have underpinned his work across the decades. Pistoletto gives us a playful crash-course in Italian history, referencing the Renaissance and Fascism in turn. Classical Antiquity collides with post-war consumerism in his Venus on the Rags, which sees the Classical goddess leaning against a large pile of waste material from textile factories. This work, an iconic piece from the Arte Povera period of 1960s-70s Italy, exemplifies Pistoletto’s anti-establishment use of cheap and unconventional materials to make high art; a provocative move which started an artistic revolution and cemented him as one of the most influential artists of the twentieth-century.
