PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Michelangelo Pistoletto is widely recognized in Europe as one of the most influential contemporary artists of his time.
And with the new exhibit, From One to Many, his work will continue gaining recognition in America, says curator Carlos Basualdo:
“He’s one of the first people that made it clear in his work that the spectator is part or should be considered part of the work.”
There are two exhibitions – an historic look at his work and a recreation of his famous City of the Arts:
“We’ll be presenting part of his work here and we’ll be doing it through a number of activities, workshops and lectures, and we will not only represents what he does but enact it.”
