The Dorsky Museum and Magazzino Italian Art Foundation to Showcase Rare Works of Italian Artists | Sponsored | Museums | Hudson Valley | Chronogram Magazine

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.

“We are so thrilled to collaborate with the Dorsky Museum to present this exhibition to both the SUNY New Paltz and Hudson Valley communities,” states Vittorio Calabrese, Director of Magazzino Italian Art Foundation. “A core mission of Magazzino since our founding has been to share Italian art and engage with the dynamic art world in this region. We could not be happier to work with the Dorsky Museum to exhibit these rare works, which share an intimate perspective into the greater practice of Arte Povera masters Boetti, Calzolari, and Kounellis.”

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.
