Pino Pascali

Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía
Calle de Santa Isabel, 52
July 19–January 22

On the heels of the Tate Modern/Walker Art Center coproduction “Zero to Infinity: Arte Povera 1962–1972,” the Reina Sofía zooms in on the career of Pino Pascali, a key figure in the movement who died prematurely in 1968. The creator of sculptures that suggest large toys, constructed of diverse, nontraditional materials, Pascali reworked the imported ideas of Neo-Dada and Pop in a thoroughly original fashion. This exhibition, curated by Livia Velani and coproduced by the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna in Rome, documents Pascali’s best-known work in addition to his investigations into artists’ films and his activity as a talented graphic designer.
