alberto burri

Alberto Burri, the late Italian Arte Povera artist, will have the first New York exhibition of his work in over twenty years at Mitchell-Innes & Nash in December. The show will span his entire career, with a large amount of works on view from the estate of his widow, Minsa Burri. Burri, a key figure in the Arte Povera movement, displayed an extraordinary "command of a wide variety of materials, including burlap, sack cloth, pumice, tar, plastic, Cellotex (an industrial material), ceramic and glue." A medic in World War II, much of his work suggests the horror of bloody wounds suffered on the battlefield.
