Michelangelo Pistoletto

The picture has exited the frame, the statue has descended from the plinth. Since then, my work—that is, the aesthetic act—has begun to melt into the spaces of life itself.

—Michelangelo Pistoletto

Lévy Gorvy is pleased to announce a major exhibition of works by the renowned Italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto. The first US presentation in a decade to feature multiple installations by Pistoletto, it will take visitors on a journey through one of the most influential and enduring artistic practices to unfold from the postwar period to the present. Lévy Gorvy’s exhibition will resonate with the themes that have animated Pistoletto’s body of work for over six decades: perception, time, history, tradition, and the relationship between art, artist, and viewer.

Designed by the artist specifically for the gallery’s New York space, Michelangelo Pistoletto’s exhibition is organized in collaboration with Galleria Continua.
