The Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art State University of New York at New Paltz and Magazzino Italian Art Foundation in Cold Spring have partnered to bring the Hudson Valley community 11 rarely-before-seen works of three Italian artists.
"Paper Media: Boetti, Calzolari, Kounellis" is a can’t-miss exhibit that starts on August 28 and runs through Dec. 8 in the Dorsky’s Sarah Bedrick Gallery.
The exhibit focuses on the artists—Alighiero Boetti, Pier Paolo Calzolari, and Jannis Kounellis—and considers the significance of drawing and print within each artist’s practice, as well as in Italian art and culture in the 1960s and 1970s.
This exhibit is the first of its kind in the United States and was curated by Magazzino’s inaugural Scholar-in-Residence, Francesco Guzzetti whose residency and research at Magazzino have laid the groundwork for further investigation into the multifaceted media practices of Italian artists in the 1960s and 1970s.
The Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art is located at State University of New York at New Paltz. 1 Hawk Drive, New Paltz, NY 12561; Wednesday to Sunday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. For more information about The Dorsky Museum and its programs, visit their website.
